Clifford V. Johnson - USC Physicist & Blogger At Asymptotia

How do you pronounce Asymptotia?
“As-simp-toe-sha” is a good shot at it.

What is Asymptotia about?
It is about anything, really, running the whole spectrum of things that take my fancy. I will not attempt to make a list here. Flavouring the whole thing will be what I spend most of my time doing and thinking about, of course. That would be Science.

Still reading? Ok, good. So I am a scientist, but this is not necessarily a science blog. It is a blog written by a scientist. The two things are not the same. Further, I’m a scientist working in a university environment, and so I’ll be mentioning and describing aspects of my academic pursuits and activities too.

But, yes, there’ll be lots of things. Three chief topics among those will be Science, Arts, Academia…. and Gardening. Oh, that’s four. Science, Arts, Academia, Gardening…. and Environment. Ok, five. Science, Arts, Academia, Gardening, Environment…. Music. Oh dear….Science, Arts, Academia, Gardening, Environment, Music, Society, Food, Drink, Life, Friends, Fun, Travelling….

Luckily, I’ll be sorting them by category to make it easy for you to filter, and to search. The archives will reflect that categorisation.

For the full article and site go to:

I've been thinking things over...and over. Well, over-thinking is good for you, really :wink:


About Overthinking It
Overthinking It subjects the popular culture to a level of scrutiny it probably doesn't deserve.
