Ok, what’s with the new science-blog format?
Honestly, the day job has been very busy, something had to give, and lately that has meant fewer science posts. But, in an effort to stay current, we’re going to try something new: Very condensed posts about more things we find very interesting provided a little less often. Hopefully, at least weekly. We’ll see if this works. And in the mean time let us know what you think. The best way is to send a tweet to: @daveoei or post a comment on the site. Enjoy!
