Cassandra has Moved

  


Professor Sabine Hossenfelder engages in a performance about Cassandra. Nice song, well sung, and it catches something of Cassandra's story and character. Although I am reasonably sure that Cassandra would not wear that kind of clothes. 


Cassandra's blog is closed. It will remain on line, but it will not be updated anymore. Ugo Bardi has moved to a new site called "The Seneca Effect."  It may be a bit more philosophical than the old Cassandra blog, but it will not be very different. 

You may also follow Ugo Bardi at "The Proud Holobionts" blog, a more optimistic blog dedicated to -- you guess to what! -- holobionts! A new concept that favors collaboration over competition in the evolution of the biosphere. 

And don't forget Ugo Bardis' musings about history and myths at the Chimera blog, with some fictional interpretations of Cassandra's story: An Interview with Cassandra  and "The True Story of the Fall of Troy"

Finally, if you like to hear Ugo Bardi rather than reading what he writes, you can find his youtube channel. It is still al little experimental, but it may grow to something interesting in the future. 

Thank you to all those who followed this blog for nearly ten years. It was a pleasure, but things keep moving and we have to move, too!

  1. Ugo,

    In reading over the comments to the penultimate posting here, it struck me that a LOT of people don't know about RSS and what it can do for them. I know you've got lots to say, and don't have time to repeat yourself, but perhaps an echo/reminder of your RSS blogroll post might be a good idea, particularly if it includes the new links, if not at Seneca, then here as a comment. I was frankly amazed at how many people use FB to find your writings. I personally jettisoned it 10 years ago, and haven't missed it, but apparently (sadly) many use it today to find stuff, including yours. Such a "dependency" summons Plato Cave comparisons, and in the worst possible way.

    To those lost souls out there: get an RSS reader, learn what an OPML file is, and get reading! You have nothing to lose but your chains! (Melodramatic? Not in today's world....)

    1. Yes, I noted that. It is unbelievable. But you can't believe how many scientists of renown can't filter their mail messages into a subfolder!

  2. Ugo: I don't know whether or not it is a bug or a feature, but I did notice that there aren't comments, not certain is that is a bug or a feature?

  3. Ugo: Doesn't appear that the comments are turned on. There doesn't seem to be a place to put in comments. Will send you a screenshot of the bottom of the post in Seneca so you can see what I see.

  4. Fixed. One of those bugs that drive you mad for a good half hour. But in the end I found the right box to check. Thanks again!
