Some of my best online columns
The irony is that I’ve written so many blog posts that I sometimes don’t even recognize what I’ve written. I’m proud of a lot of them, surprised to reread them, and just really enjoyed the feedback and response to them, in all kinds of ways.

One of the best online pieces I have, I can’t take full credit for. Daniel Lende and I wrote a joint statement of the state of Neuroanthropology before our conference in 2009: The Encultured Brain: Why Neuroanthropology? Why Now? This piece later got incorporated into our introduction for our book, The Encultured Brain: An Introduction to Neuroanthropology.
