University of Michigan Interviews Me!

A few months back, I was interviewed for the University of Michigan's med school magazine "Medicine at Michigan," which made me feel like quite the star seeing as how I had my picture taken in dramatical black and white. The interview, which just came out, was about the "kerfuffle" with the fair use copyright-fight I was involved with in May with the Journal of Food and Agriculture.

Compared to the Swedish system, academic recruitment is extremely swift in the UK. In Scandyland, it's typically 7 months from the application deadline to the rejection letter, mainly because of slow external referees. The worst I've seen was 14 months. But in the UK, it's all done in a matter of…

Let's see... Brain-shreddingly smart and eye-fryingly beautiful. Do you have an older sister with considerably lower standards and expectations?

Anyway, it's a shame when a research group becomes so ridiculously proprietary that they confuse an attempt to raise awareness to themselves and their work as something dishonest or an attempt to plagiarize. But, there's lots of paranoia in academia, isn't there?

This must be a nice mood-improver after the death of Alex and two shocking, embarrassing football losses for Big Blue in a row.

you now have the biggest geek fan-club in the blogosphere (that is for a human rather than a game character). Go Blue!

Wait, you said more cleavage and I thought first of large books of muscovite or nice octahedra of fluorite.

Must...leave...mineral...specimens...alone...for...a...few...hours...

Did I mention that UM followed up last week's loss to I-AA Appalachian State with their worst loss in decades, 39-7 to Oregon? Local sports commentators are suggesting that if Big Blue loses to Notre Dame next weekend, Lloyd Carr will be out of a job.

The cleavage is nice, but personally I find the cross pendant to be a turn-off.

I am shocked, shocked I tell you, to find cleavage so brazenly on display in a science blog. Who do you think you are, Hillary Clinton?? :)

Seriously, I thought it was a very nice article...

Thanks everybody. :)

Tegumai, must you insist on derailing every UM discussion with obsesssive remarks about football? Every now and then is fine, but every time is a little weird.

The cross isn't a Jesbus cross anyway, its an equal cross equating 'protection' a la the Swiss Army. Its strange that you would think otherwise, if you read this blog.

Shelley, must you be a girlfriend character from xkcd? Seriously, you're making me wonder if I have a fetish for hot nerdy girls.

(Does it still count as objectivizing a woman if you like her for her smarts?)
