About the site

Just A Theory was launched in the summer of 2008 as a way to hone my science writing craft. In the spring of 2009, additional writers drawn from the Imperial College Science Communication course joined the site. As of 2011, the site is mostly dormant, but you can probably expect to see the occasional post popping up now and then.
