Hi. I’m Gillian.
I love reading things. I love the internet, where seemingly infinite knowledge is accessible. I love fun facts, and long reads. I like learning history, especially the history of specific things. I love thinking about things that used to exist but don’t now. Or do now but didn’t used to. Also time travel.
I like learning how things work, and about the people who dreamed them up. The process of invention and innovation is a fascinating one: hard work and serendipitous accidents meeting in just the right spot.
I love getting an inside look at something. It often opens up a whole new world, and proves that people will totally nerd out on anything (even something I had never even given two thoughts to). Most of all I love sharing them with others. These are the things that tickle my neurons; I hope some of them tickle yours, too.
