I have a whole pile of science-y book reviews on two of my older blogs, here and here. Both of those blogs have now been largely superseded by or merged into this one. So I’m going to be slowly moving the relevant reviews over here. I’ll mostly be doing the posts one or two per…

Their rather impressive lineup of OA Week events (and I’m not just saying this because I’m involved, believe me) is here. My part is a talk I’m giving on Wednesday: Wednesday, October 20 2-3:30 Exploring…

I’m away for a couple of days, so I thought I’d fill in a bit with an oldy-buy-goody from February 4, 2009. It ended up being the first of three parts, with the other two being here and here. As usual, the first part got the most readers and comments, with the two after that…
