Oh dear. I have neglected the blog for 9 long months. This is not to say that I have not been forming numerous, strong opinions about many subjects (for those of you who know me, you know me better than that).
No, no. I merely became a bit frustrated that what I wanted to do — that is, summarize the coolest research that had blipped through my inbox — was also being done by every major journal and casual geek-writer that one could shake a stick at. Instead, I will start addressing some of the interesting trends in science, including a surge in open-access journals. Other trends remain at the fringe of science, such as, “What on earth can I do with my science PhD when I don’t want to do science anymore?” Yet other articles will include the answers to reader comments, including an anonymous request for me to demonstrate — with glitter — how those glowing kitties do their glow thing.
Stay tuned, intrepid readers! Exciting thing are coming.
