Doug's Blogs: I am in the process of moving my blogs to Google Blogger, perhaps collapsing them, but for now there is an AI and Computing blog, with a heavy emphasis on education, and a "letters to the editor" blog (as well as politicians) on of opinion science and politics. Both blogs are occasional and I will sometimes move and update previous posts from an earlier site to Blogger.
