    More Travel!

    Posting will be irregular this week – I’m off traveling again, this time in the Washington, DC area. (This hasn’t been the single most scientifically productive April I’ve ever had, unfortunately). I do hope to get some posts up, but not today – whatever news is happening, I’ll catch up on it for tomorrow! Read More

    San Diego

    Thanks to the readership for all the suggestions. Today I managed to survive on fish tacos for lunch and a fearsome bacon burger at Hodad’s over in Ocean Beach for dinner. Good thing the hotel has a gym. No one’s going to mistake Newport Street there for La Jolla, are they? Tomorrow I’m having a… Read More

    Travel

    Most of my last 24 hours have been spent in travel mode, of one sort or another, so I doubt if I’ll have a full blog post this morning. I’m out in San Diego for a conference, so if any of you are doing the same, perhaps I’ll run into you. I won’t be blogging… Read More

    Blogs and Journalism

    Nature is out with a piece on the state of science journalism, and I’m quoted several times as a representative science blogger. They’ve overstated my blog traffic, though, which is gratifying but inaccurate. Instead of 200,000 page views per week, that’s more like my traffic per month. Give it time, I guess! I also am… Read More

    Hexacyclinol – Another Request

    I’m taking the day off from cranking out the medicines of tomorrow (OK, the day after tomorrow), so there will be no post today. I did want to add something about yesterday’s post on the La Clair/hexacyclinol controversy. I’d like to ask that people not fill up the comments with ad hominem remarks or potentially… Read More

    Day Off

    Today is a holiday in many workplaces around the US today, and so it is at mine. I’m home at stately Lowe Manor, breaking ice off the shady front steps and cleaning out the cage of my daughter’s guinea pig. The comparatively relaxing (and comparatively nice-smelling) business of drug discovery will resume tomorrow, as will… Read More

    The Blogroll

    This is long, long, overdue, but I’ve finally gone through the blogroll and cleared out the dead sites, of which there are (were) many. Stage Two will be adding news ones. I already have a list going, with an eye on getting them in this weekend, but I’d be glad to hear about others that… Read More

    Holiday Break

    Posting will be intermittent around here until after January 1st. I’m going to be doing various important tasks at home, such as wrapping presents and making another chocolate pecan pie for folks who didn’t get any the last time around. There’s also some snow to be shoveled, particularly if I want to get the telescope… Read More

    How Slow is Research Today? Here’s a Recipe!

    The pace of research has noticeably slowed today here in the US. Most industrial labs will be empty tomorrow, Friday, and through the weekend, and even the academic labs will have fewer grad students and post-docs hanging out in them. I’ll be cleaning up some previously run reactions, setting up anything that can comfortably go… Read More

    Day Off

    No time for a post this morning, unfortunately. The arguments are continuing full speed in the comments to Hard Times: A Manifesto, though, and I plan to do a long-overdue blogroll update this weekend. There are several sites that have needed to be added for quite a while now, and several others that have fallen… Read More
