  17. 17. Too old? Raymond Chandler started writing in his early 40s after losing his job as an oil-industry executive during the great depression. His first novel The Big Sleep was published in 1939. He was 51. http://www.newscientist.com/gallery/dn21559-middle-age
  18. 18. Too old? The average age at which Nobel laureates make their prizewinning breakthroughs was recently found to be 48. Harry Kroto, who won the chemistry prize in 1996, made his when he was 46. http://www.newscientist.com/gallery/dn21559-middle-age
  19. 19. Too old? Philosopher Mary Midgley had brought up three children and worked as a lecturer in provincial British universities for more than 20 years when she published her first book at the age of 56. Later she remarked: "I wrote no books until I was a good 50, and I'm jolly glad because I didn't know what I thought before then." Her most recent book, The Solitary Self: Darwin and the selfish gene, was published in 2010, when Midgley was 91. http://www.newscientist.com/gallery/dn21559-middle-age
  20. 20. Too old? Ultramarathon runner Marco Olmo started running in his 20s but didn't win his first big title until he was 50. In 2006, aged 58, he won the 166kilometre Ultra-Trail du MontBlanc – considered one of the world's toughest races – and proved it wasn't a fluke by winning again the next year. http://www.newscientist.com/gallery/dn21559-middle-age

  31. 31. Your turn to blog ...
  32. 32. Technology & Community & Openness But blogging was the cheapest, most risk-free investment I could have made of my personal time into my job. You start by writing down things that are interesting to you, practices you don’t want to forget. And then you start trying new things just so you can blog about them later, picking them apart, and dialoging over them with strangers. Periods of stagnancy in your blogging start to correspond to periods of stagnancy in your teaching. You start to muse on your job when you’re stuck in traffic, in line for groceries, that sort of thing. That transformation has been nothing but good for me and it all began on a free Blogspot blog.
