Paul Conant, a free-lance reporter, writes occasional web essays under the site names Znewz1, Conantcensorshipissue, N-fold and Kryptograff.
Znewz1 and Conantcensorshipissue are dedicated to the principle of freedom of speech and press and of theological and academic inquiry.
The N-fold and Kryptograff web sites discuss often eccentric ideas in science and math. Such essays are to some extent Conant's notes to himself, rather than polished articles. They may be found at various addresses and domains, including Angelfire and Blogspot.
Conant, writing under the byline 'Roger Conant,' was for years a newspaperman in metro New York and has contributed to the New York Times. He served as a combat correspondent in Vietnam. He has no formal scientific training.
