This is the page for promoting the writing Ryan does that’s NOT for the Paleocave Blog. Those posts can be found here: Ryan’s Ramblings.
Ryan likes to write a lot, and not just about science (well, usually about science) but sometimes he uses science in conjunction with other topics, generally comics. Below are a list of his available articles. Enjoy!
First and foremost, he plays around on Tumblr with a blog entitled Living the Sci Life but he’s also been writing for Motherboard, but there nice enough to compile his posts for him which you can find here.
