I’m David Valentine, a linguistic and cultural anthropologist at the University of Minnesota.

This is a blog about (1) the future of humans in outer space, (2) writing a book, and (3) writing a book about the future humans in outer space.  These are actually three separate things.  This blog is really for my own purposes to help me work out bits of this book, but I figured it might be interesting to other people, so I’m going to make my process public.  It’s a venue to experiment with ideas, test-drive text, and complain about how tiresome it is to write a book.

I’ve done it once before and I seem to remember swearing not to do it again, but here I am.
