The Institute’s new future of science Web site is now live. For the last couple years we’ve been running the project under the name X2– an historical reference to the X Club, a group I’ve long found fascinating– but we’ve updated the name to Signtific, and rolled out a new, much more user-friendly Web site.

No time to stop and relax, though. We’ve also nearly finished development of a custom version of the online mapping tool that I started using last year (here are copies of my paper spaces and end of cyberspace maps, for example), which promises to be pretty amazing. So no rest for the wicked.
