Debate is good for science
Last year I was at a dinner symposium where EJ Corey gave a brilliant impromptu talk before a toast. It was a captivating speech all about how things have rapidly changed over the span of his 80+ years. The take home message was that change is natural and you can either embrace it and adapt or be left behind. I'm no fortune teller but it is clear to me that blogging is here to stay and is gathering momentum. The purpose of this blog is to give you a no holds barred, behind the scenes look into our science. This blog will, hopefully, be like an open flask.
