Introduction . . .

This is a brand new blog, by a brand new blogger. However, some readers may recognize this blog's title, taken from a series of books of the same name. Unfortunately, time has a way of gradually making printed material all too quickly outdated -- especially these days -- and so, this blog was created partly as an attempt to address that issue.

As we move forward from here on-going efforts will be made to transfer selected content from the Better Microscopy books series into this new format, not only to provide to provide more effective distribution, but also as a means for making timely additions and overdue updates to that material. In addition, much previously unpublished material is now planned to be released, including high-resolution color images.

The current plan is to aim for a content mix that is both interesting and educational -- perhaps even inspiring -- and which will address the needs and interests of a wide range of user levels, from beginner to semi-professional. With more decades of Microscopy experience than I care to admit, I hope I will be able to contribute something to others in terms of both knowledge and enjoyment.

I hope you find something of interest in new undertaking as it takes shape and gain much from its content, now and well into the future!

Just beware of the occasional attempts at humor...

Thanks for visiting!

What -- No comments???

The issue of allowing readers to participate in this blog via comments has been raised and has been given careful consideration.

While there is a certain potential benefit from such contributions, there is also the potential for a significantly increased workload in having to review, consider, answer and moderate all of this additional material.

Given the significant existing backlog of work of higher priority, it does not seem to make sense to pursue this option at this time. However, once this backlog is under control, this issue will likely be revisited.

In the mean time, there are a number of other blogs/Groups which can serve as forums for any such issues. (The various Microscopy-related Groups at Yahoo, for example, are one possibility.)

For those readers who would like to see this option enabled sooner, rather than later, I can only promise that I will endeavor to clear the current backlog of new material as soon as overall scheduling permits.

However, as an interim measure, in lieu of direct access for comments, readers may e-mail questions or comments about blog content to:   BetterMicroBlog@gmail.com

This is a unique address, reserved exclusively for blog reader traffic, which should allow for faster and more efficient service and response.
