New uncanny valley blog and ScoopIt pages

Hello lovely readers! (There are still some of you out there, right?)

I'm still working (bloody hard!) on this PhD project - my timelines have gone somewhat awry because of a difficult year - but I wanted to let you know that I've shifted to blogging somewhere else and don't think I'm likely to post on here much. Over the last year I've been writing a combined baking/PhD blog called 'Procrastination Recipes' - it started as an outlet for the PhD-caused stress but it's now where I go to when I want to get something out of my system or solve a problem that I'm working on. If you're still interested in my research, I'd love you to come and join me there for the last few months on my PhD.

I've also been curating a ScoopIt page on the Uncanny Valley for the last few months - it's now where I'm collating all the news stories, pictures, videos and even music that I think trigger a sense of the uncanny so has replaced that function too. Again, I'd love you to follow it if you'd like to keep up to date with all the latest 'news' on all things uncanny.

That's quite enough for one morning I think - so thanks for reading, and happy (nearly) Halloween to you all :)

~ Steph.
