not a national science

here's to changing the academy, one step at a time. i'm one of those people who actually believes in the nobility of scholarship, of spending a lifetime trying to understand and explain your piece of the puzzle by connecting it to other pieces. but i also believe that the academy is, by and large, a (reprehensibly) conservative institution. and so i will probably spend the rest of my life trying to change a space i love...

just back from a meeting in montreal which has renewed my faith in the ability of a few good people to create something really meaningful (and useful). hats off to collaborative online spaces and to "changing the way research is done."

rob and julie: for moving us further away from a national science, you owe me a beer ;)
