The newspaper column: moving on…

After 13 happy years as a columnist at The Guardian newspaper, I’ve stopped. It was a joy and a privilege working with the editors there.

ThisIsImprobable-book(You can read all those old columns — more than 500 of them — on the Guardian web site, and find links and bits of extra information here on the Improbable site. Some of those columns were collected and enhanced into two books: This Is Improbable, and This Is Improbable Too.)

The newly freed-up writing time will let me play with new things: in the Improbable Research podcast; in the magazine (which we are transitioning into the new PDF era!); in Ig Nobel Prize activities; in some new projects; and in speaking gigs (do feel free to invite me to talk at your meeting, conference, or whatever!).
