Eureka

A few months ago, London Times started a new science section called Eureka. The Brits over on Nature Network are reading and critiquing it, mainly for its huge, gender disparity, both in the authors and in the number of scientists portrayed and in the ways they are portrayed. But this is not available to people here in the USA and I wanted to see it for myself. I actually I tried to get them to send 250 or so copies for our swag bag at ScienceOnline2010, but that did not work out this year. So I was very happy when Simon Frantz walked in the hotel and saw me and pulled out these two issues he brought as a present for me. I’ll take a good look:

    Opps. On closer inspection, that looks to be a sample issue from last year. Drat.

    (Let me have a nosey and see if I can redeem myself…)

    Do you want me to see if I can find some copies and ship them to you?
