Welcome to the future! I am posting this from my iPod. That reminds me: last week a review went up on LabLit.com for a book I found at BMV this past summer. Its a textbook for high school kids about science in literature. The book is from 1994 and hilariously outdated. I dont feel like repeating everything I already wrote about it – especially considering Im typing this on a tiny touch screen – so just read the review
[update: links don't work from the iPhone app. I had to fix that manually.]
This video goes with a website, on which several (1, 2, 3, 4) friends of easternblot answer the same question. It’s a pretty difficult question, if you think about it. I did. I considered submitting something, but couldn’t formulate it properly.
A thing I wrote:
The article I wrote on OpenCourseWare is available in an easy to read online format after all!
A thing I read:
I read this awesome New Yorker article “Darwin’s Surprise” about human endogenous retroviruses (HERVs) when I was preparing my last Facts behind the Fiction piece for ReGenesis. I don’t know why I even bothered writing stuff myself, because this piece is so clearly much better. I put it as the first reference, but don’t know if people ever click on the references (I don’t even know if people actually ever read my pieces!) so I’m telling you now, this article is great, and you should read it.
I wrote an article about OpenCourseWare for a teaching course I took this semester, and it’s in a university newspaper this week. I’m on the back cover of The Bulletin, and if you’re at UofT you should pick it up. Alternatively, you can download the original assignment as a PDF (this one has all the footnotes and references in it)
