Things have changed... since I started here I haven't added a single hard copy of anything to my filing cabinet, which is now mostly used to store snacks and spare pairs of shoes.
It felt like I'd stepped into a different dimension.
Ping me if you want my public key; also available at all good PGP servers.

Richard P. Grant read Biochemistry at the University of Oxford (Lady Margaret Hall) and was awarded his DPhil, on the structure and function of the cytoskeletal protein talin, in 1994.
Once described as 'CS Lewis on acid', he has fifteen years' research experience in industrial and academic laboratories, in Oxford, Cambridge and Sydney, but is now making a career in medical communications and publishing as a senior writer. In the lab, he specialized in how the structure of biological macro-molecules determines their cellular function, but now frequently can be found dodging flak in the No Man's Land between science and art, taking photographs, and writing short fiction and poetry.
He has published short fiction (three times, now) in the Futures series in Nature, and has also written for Chemistry World. Other short fiction and poetry is published at LabLit.com, under the pseudonym rpg: he is also LabLit.com's Deputy editor.
