This image takes the common words out of some of my publications, including the blogs that I've stopped posting to for the time being. You can go over to Wordle and play, too, though.

E-mail me but erase the final "a". This address is equivalent to the old, defunct server which figures on some of the older publications - most of which are open access anyhow.
