My dear SciBling and fellow big-nose European, Bora/Coturnix, has a wonderful story to tell! After seeing an interesting job ad (regarding a position as on-line community manager for the Open Access journal publishing house Public Library of Science) he blogged about it and said he’d really like the job. In a matter of hours, a PLoS editor commented on Bora’s blog and asked if the blog entry should be considered as a formal job application — and Bora got the job! I gather what did it was a combination of his excellent blogging and the way he interacts with his many readers in the comments section.

Congratulations, Bora!

    Why have no science fiction writers anticipated anything like this? Answer: no imagination.
