Goodbye from Neuroworld

NEW YORK - APRIL 26:  An issue of The Wall Str...

I suspect it will surprise precisely no one to learn that Neuroworld has ceased — and now will permanently cease — publication. The reason is rather simple: I’ve joined the staff of the Wall Street Journal, and my new job for a number of reasons (time being not the least of these) doesn’t allow for the maintenance of a blog. I’ll still be writing on neuro/behavioral/psychological related topics for SmartMoney.com, where my Money & Your Mind column appears.

So, for now, I’d just like to thank all of you who came along for the ride since my opening post laid out an agenda of looking at the intersection between our increasing understanding of our own irrationality and the choices we make, both as individuals and as a society. True/Slant has created a remarkably engaged community of readers, and it’s been a pleasure writing for you and reading your feedback.

And, speaking of True/Slant, I also want to thank the management here for having given me the opportunity to expand my journalistic horizons — one can only spend so much time thinking about politics before one stops thinking at all.

So, so long, and I can now be reached at firstname.lastname-at-wsj.com.

  1. collapse expand

    Farewell Ryan. Your dogged pursuit of ‘Neuroworld’, beyond providing True/Slant with some of its first big traffic hits, really proved the possibilities we set out to demonstrate with our platform. That is, the ‘entrepreneurial journalist’ who could establish his or herself online as an expert in a particular approach to the news of the day. It was our honor to host and oversee the great content you produced here at T/S for the past year and a half, and if what you’ve done so far for the WSJ and SmartMoney is any sign of what’s to come, you’re worth every cent and more that News Corp. can afford to pay you.

    Happy trails, Ryan. I had inquired after you and I’m glad to know you’ve landed a regular job in journalism against all odds. I love the WSJ culture reporting, finding it just a tad bit more sophisticated than, say, Forbes, and I’ll look for the best of it from you.

    I’m sad to hear about Neuroworld, but glad to hear you’ve moving onwards and upwards – congrats!

    About Me

    I'm a freelance writer and blogger based in Brooklyn, NY. My background is mostly in politics. I've worked on the editorial boards of the New York Sun and New York Post. In 2006, I wrote a book, "The Elephant in the Room: Evangelicals, Libertarians, and the Battle to Control the Republican Party" (Wiley). I've also done my share of freelancing, for places like the Atlantic Monthly, The New York Times, Reason, and RealClearPolitics.

    These days, I'm interested in humanity's ever-expanding understanding of its own irrationality. Hence, this blog.
