April was a busy month, so I posted only 145 times. Also, posts that would have been just simple links and one-liners are now more likely to be found on Twitter (from which I import the feeds into FriendFeed and Facebook).
Go through the April archives - lots of news and several excellent (or very funny) videos to be found there - but here are the "more serious" posts of the past month:
Probably the most thoughtful (and perhaps provocative) post of the month was ScienceOnline'09 - Saturday 4:30pm and beyond: the Question of Power.
We had long and interesting discussions in the comment threads of Eliminate peer-review of baseline grants entirely? and Why eliminate the peer-review of baseline grants? as well as on Hey, You Can't Say That! Or can you?
Still on my New Journalism track, I posted 'Journalists vs. Blogs' is bad framing and New Journalistic Workflow. The latter explained, among else, the concept of Mindcasting, so I decided to try it out myself, and the result was a huge comment thread on Do you love or hate Cilantro?
I collected Bora's Links on (Science) Journalism for a reason that will be revealed to you tomorrow.
Speaking of newspapers, please check out In today's papers....
I barely touched politics all month, except briefly in How Obama uses Behavioral Economics to change our habits
Speaking of PLoS, I have also been posting a lot on everyONE.com. Check out these posts of mine there: Blog Post Of The Month - March 2009, Academic Editor Interview - Adam Ratner, Why you should post comments, notes and ratings on PLoS ONE articles, PLoS ONE Collections, Academic Editor Interview - Craig McClain and Rating articles in PLoS ONE.
Interesting that the one liners/links are going to twitter/etc. It might be nice if they were still here, perhaps as an and of the day, or every to day aggregation, or as a sidebar thingie.
My April summary can be accessed with the link that is my name, below.
I thought about it. I saw some people do that. I may have too many tweets per day, though. Also, my tweets are exported to my FriendFeed and I have a FF widget on the sidebar so they are all visible here.
