3 Quarks Daily (link) is a science and humanities website, which excerpts interesting pieces on a wide range of themes from a multitude of internet sources. They are what is called a "filter blog". On Mondays, however, the editors of 3QD allow guest columnists to write essays that have not been published elsewhere. Each guest columnist writes once every four weeks. My columns for 3QD are below:
