Psycasm is the exploration of the world psychological. Every day phenomenon explained and manipulated to one's own advantage. Written by a slightly overambitious undergrad, Psycasm aims at exploring a whole range of social and cognitive processes in order to best understand how our minds, and those mechanisms that drive them, work.

Just a quick catch-up.
The Freewill series is currently on hold. Denise, one of the contributers, has had her computer stolen. It contained everything. So for both pragmatic and academic reasons, she has had to withdraw (temporarily) from the project.
As for my blogging, I'm a bit quiet this week due to some personal stuff. I've also been reconsidering the format of my blog. I've noticed my posts are getting longer and longer, and so I'm trying to figure out how I want to fix this (or even if it's such a bad thing). My personal thoughts are 'long posts are good' but I'm not sure this view is widely held. So I'm working on some topics and formats that bring the individual posts lengths down without sacrificing all the things I want to share. This may take a little bit of time, and input would be greatly appreciated. If you read any blogs with novel/interesting formatting and presentations styles I'd be very interested in reading them.
I should have a post up in the next few days (with lots of pictures, hopefully).

I think the general consensus on post length is that long posts get more views, but fewer comments. I'm not sure that necessarily means that more people actually read them. I wonder if there have been any indepth studies on that.
It does make it harder to comment, because by the time I'm done with the post, it may be several days later (like your post about external validity, with which I don't completely agree, although I don't remembery why!).
But also remember that you have to do what you think will be better for you. If you are not having fun with it, you will stop doing it (or find "really good" reasons to stop).
Good advice. My personal way of reading blogs is to take bits in between other bits of (more important work). I do like it that way, and I do like if I can keep coming back to a post for a prolonged period of time. Though Brian you bring up a good point - do people even get to the end?
Is there a stat for 'time on page'?
