Update and Preview August 9, 2013Posted by Will Thomas in Technocracy in the UK.
This is basically a quick post to serve as evidence that I am still alive and well. I’m now living in Silver Spring, Maryland, just outside Washington, DC. The last month has been incredibly busy as I’ve transitioned back to life in the United States, and into a new job, all toting along a one-year-old. I have had some opportunity to work on my interests in the history of science, but not ones that will result in a blog post. However, one of the big things I’ve been doing is inspired by the continued traffic I’m seeing on my “Agricultural Colleges in Britain” post. Basically that post presented a chronological list of Britain’s colleges. But it turns out to be possible—thanks largely to the British zeal for local history—to pinpoint their locations (and the locations of agricultural research facilities), even for those that are now long gone.
