In order to cover for my recent wrist injury (which is getting better, but slowly, thanks for asking), I've invited St. Scott Church to fill in a bit.
Scott is a frequent commenter; going out of his way to be helpful when explaining things to non-experts, but with little taste for nonsense from those who ought to know better. He got an M.S. in Applied Physics from the University of Washington in 1988, and now works as a photographer in Seattle. Here is his personal website.
Scott will be writing a series of at least 2 posts on the Interpretation of Quantum Mechanics (and maybe later on, some other topics).
Also, to all those who have left thoughtful questions, sorry that I can't attend to them all right now. But I still might respond to a few of them. (I will of course continue to read and moderate the comments.)
