This is, to put it mildly, a hectic time. Today I need to make final changes – before it is sent to the printers – to the Program for ScienceOnline2011 (which is going to be awesome). We are finally finalizing the final finalists for the Open Laboratory (which is going to be awesome). We are getting close to the Scienceblogging.org release of Version 2.0 (which is going to be awesome). And there is a lot of movement at work, building a new network (which is going to be awesome). Oh, and I think we’ll be moving to a new apartment over the next couple of weeks as well. So, stressful time, but also all awesome. And most of it is occurring behind the scenes, so you cannot see, so you’ll have to just wait and, in the meantime, read these great articles:
