Verum Serum: State of the Blog, Part Deux

Scott on July 16, 2006 at 8:43 pm

Since John put up a great overview of the young history of Verum Serum, I thought I would highlight some of individual posts and multiple-posts-on-a-theme that we have presented over the past year. Some are John’s, some are mine, and some are cooperative projects.

It isn’t just the posts that have been good/interesting/informative. More so are the comments and exchange of ideas that have come out of the comments.

I can’t wait to see what Year #2 will offer! Anyway, here are some of my highlights…

Debunking Gregory S. Paul
