Just a quick note that I have written an overview of how the blog is setup, with indications for what people should look for if they want a similar setup for their own blog.
I have been asked on more than one occasion how to setup a blog similar to CA, and what to look out for. I have toyed with the idea of hosting blogs myself, having gone through the firey hoops of keeping CA upright, but it would be difficult to know whether I’d have sufficient audience to do it. The idea would be to try and create an ecosystem of blogs which analyze different aspects of climate science that Steve has limited time for, such as GCMs, fundamentals of statistics, solar physics, econometrics and economic models and so on.
One of the things I am going to setup for CA when we get the keys to the new VPS is proper LaTeX support. The mimeTeX plug-in is a little basic on formatting and creating ladders of equations is a pain.
Any other suggestions for things that CA could improve on, let me know.
