Other Blog

My virtual journalclub is being comment-spammed like crazy. 5 new ones every day that I dutifully delete. I worry what would happen if I didn't pay attention to it for two weeks or so.

At my last eval my manager -- soon to no longer be my manager -- made a comment that kinda hit me: "40 papers-- that's a dissertation." Yeah, I read that many, but because they are so all over the field, and I had no idea for a direction other than a very vague one, I don't have an analysis of 40 papers worth a dissertation, I have 40 blurbs. That could have been better. Just reading them because the abstracts were interesting was not enough.
