We are renting out the house that we used to live in Edmonton. If you know anybody interested in renting a house that is well suited to a family, please pass this link on to them!

Thanks so much.

I saw a heron catch and eat a fish on my walk to work today... Very cool! I thought that the bird must be feeling quite proud...

Going to see Scofield next week here in Tuebingen! Psyched.
The electric guitarist left college about 40 years ago, and judging from the success of his career, it wasn't a bad decision. Berklee welcomes Scofield back to perform new tunes and old repertoire.

I feel like sending a similar letter out next time I get a request to review a paper!
 
Today's reply to an #Elsevier  review request:

Dear Professor XXXX,

Traditional scientific publishers make higher profits than almost every other legal industry, by exploiting scholars' free labor and draining university library funds. Rather than reviewing for Elsevier, I have pledged to spend my time supporting alternatives, such as open access journals. 

The UK Open Access Implementation Group (http://t.co/rhgKN1bGqa) exists to help scholarly societies transition to alternative publishing models. Vision Research has a venerable history of publishing high-quality perception research, and almost all the credit in my opinion goes to the editorial board and the reviewers, who have added a lot of value over the years by improving the quality of authors' research through the reviewing process. My recommendation is for the editorial boards of Elsevier-published journals to resign and pursue alternatives. 

best
Alex

This is a video of an experimental, improvisational event that I participated in last week. Listen to it and feel free to post your thoughts in the comments!
