2 responses to “The Open Laboratory 2009 – the submissions so far

  1. It’s complicated but the title of “Nature Network rolls over and exposes its belly” should be “Respect my Authority”. the original was taken down by NPG’s lawyers, so rpg re-posted it on one of his other blogs, and gave it the new title.

  2. OK, I’ll change it starting with next week.
