Interesting post by +Terry McGlynn on self-publishing the reviews received on your manuscripts.

I am intrigued by the idea of fractional scholarship (but not the name). Can the Ronin Institute (http://ronininstitute.org/) make it a viable option?
This article was co-authored with Jon Wilkins, the founder of the Ronin Institute When you start graduate school, it is easy to imagine your future.

When science becomes art... I love these figures! The only thing that would make them more beautiful to my eye is a serif font. Be sure to click on the images in the post to see them in their full-size glory.

The truth is out there...

Are you more honest than a banker? Under what circumstances would you lie, or cheat, and what effect does your deception have on society at large? Dan Ariely, one of the world's leading voices on human motivation and behaviour is the latest big thinker to get the RSA Animate treatment.
