I posted only 25 times in April.
The big news of the month is that The Open Laboratory project has a new publisher and a new guest editor.
April was not as busy month travel-wise as March (or upcoming May), but I did go to NYC once, and packed the two days with lots of work and fun which, among else, resulted in a new blog post at SciAm: Giant Dino exhibit at the American Museum of Natural History, or, why I should not be a photojournalist.
I made sure that the Scientific American Guest Blog was busy all month as well, full of great posts on a diversity of topics – check them all out:
