Just when I thought I was actually moving forward on this whole science blogging adventure, a month and a half flies by. My excuses include the impending submission of my paper and all the fun formatting and fine tuning that goes along with that. As a result, I discovered that Google reader stops counting the unread posts after you hit 1000. I also discovered that writing something coherent, particularly about science, requires concerted time and effort. Unfortunately, time and effort are in short supply these days.
