- Gene Likens started off this year's Teale Series with a talk on the "voice" of science in policy (his scare quotes, not mine). He made many excellent points, but he missed an opportunity to make one important one. I'll offer a few thoughts on his talk, which is more than a little daunting, since he's had so much more experience in applying science to policy than I have.
- My copy of resonate arrived late last week. I won't have a chance to read it carefully for awhile, but I'll share first impressions based on a quick survey of its contents. I'm really looking forward to digging in.
- The University of California and Nature Publishing Group appear to have reached an agreement on subscription prices, avoiding a threatened boycott of NPG by the UC system.. I haven't had a chance to see what's publicly known about the agreement, but it's an issue I really want to follow up on.
Oh, I may have to say something about my new iPad, too.
