Hello, I’m Anne Fitzpatrick. I work on international collaborations in computing, American and Russian nuclear weapons, and science and technology policy and culture. I also moonlight in the area of contemporary history of science and technology. In this blog I will be discussing: scientific computing technology and general information technology (IT) on the domestic and global fronts; the United States’ nuclear weapons complex, its national laboratories, and their Russian counterparts; and the science and technology scene in the former Soviet Union. I will write about major current events in my specialty areas, and to keep things lively, occasionally blog on surprise topics that do not fall exactly into any of these categories. Blog on!
