Best of January

I posted 57 times in January.

January was dominated by ScienceOnline2011, of course, and I let others do all of the in-depth blogging (so far), But before it started I got one last ScienceOnline2010 interview in – with Steve Koch.

Open Laboratory 2010 is almost ready. But while you wait – we announced the new cover art: And now…. the brand new Open Lab cover!. And we have opened up for submissions for the next year: Open Laboratory 2011 – open for submissions.

I also asked Can WordPress do this?
