Understanding[x]

At Cobalt, we take understanding seriously, which is why we’re pleased to introduce our Understanding(x) Series. Over time, we will take complex topics (or topics that seem deceptively simple) and explore them substantively, fully, with the goal of helping ordinary people understand the world a little bit more deeply.

Cobalt-60 is the name of our blog, an online digest dedicated to the art and science of communications. (It’s also an isotope of the element cobalt.)
