Long and short: I’m a grad student. Lots of ambition. Lots of dumb. I’m in this crazy program in which I’m doing a collaborative project between a biomedical research institute in the states and a Major Research University in England. Just finished my second year of crapping all over myself, but it’s still pretty awesome.
Why do this? Why would you care about what I have to say? Well, I can’t say that you will, but my reason for doing this is that I started following some baller folks in the sci journo community about a year ago via twitter, and have now decided I should stop being a passive observer (because, you know, I really need more ways to divide my time).
