Week in review

This was a busy, crazy week. On Monday and Tuesday I was in Boston. You may remember I went to Boston last year as well and for the same reason – spending a day at the WGNH studios, helping with the World Science project that combines radio, podcasts and online forums. You have probably noticed…

Clock Quotes

Of all tyrannies, a tyranny exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive. It may be better to live under robber barons than under omnipotent moral busybodies.

See all the interviews in this series here. You can check out previous years’ interviews as well: 2008 and 2009. Today,…

ResearchBlogging Awards 2010

Thus, apart from a couple of quick retweets, I did not have the opportunity until now to take a…

New and Exciting in PLoS ONE

There are 27 new articles in PLoS ONE today. As always, you should rate the articles, post notes and comments and send trackbacks when you blog about the papers. You can now also easily place articles on various social services (CiteULike, Mendeley, Connotea, Stumbleupon, Facebook and Digg) with just one click. Here are my own…
