Hi ElNando,

these are rather interesting, have you considerd moving them into the mainspace ?

Hi Ed,

Well, first of all, thanks :)

And no, not really. These documents are fundamentally personal in nature. I tend to use humour, I refer to myself and engage in dialogs, virtual ones most of the time, but once, wilf did follow me in my elucubrations. And I like these documents that way.

In the main namespace, I'd rather have more neutral documents, more Wikipedia-like if you prefer. And I don't feel like any of my little "researchs" have a real scientific value. All I say in my blog has to be taken with a grain of salt...

The thing I love about wiki, is the way that these two worlds can harmoniously coexist. I did some extensive work on some of the mainspace articles (stacking for instance), because I felt that some of my blog entries needed to have some solid reference articles to support them. And the other way around, I could imagine that reference articles could simply link (a 'see also' paragraph typically) to personal blog stories like mine, as a mean of illustration.

I look at your blog posts (and despite having played eterna for a while and having a moderate understanding of biology) I keep running into things that I don't quite understand but would like to, as I think they might improve my understanding of eterna. The whole 3D nature of teh bases and the different interactions with different ends of the same base with the nearby molecules that looks to my eye somewhere between foldit and eterna and potentially good for explaining apparent boosts working/not. So yes I'm looking at your blog as a series of interesting examples, which with enough wikilinks could expand my knowledge - perhaps add 'Eternablogs' as a link of the miscellaeous subsection of the main page would give the general eterna population a way 'in' to getting their heads around whatever particular thoughts are going through your head as you look at labs/puzzles/research/whatever ? Anyway that's my tuppence Edward Lane (talk) 13:31, 24 June 2013 (UTC)
