Posting a preprint or a dataset isn't immediately legitimized because it has a DOI.

Scientist working in the field gets bitten by crocodile (she's okay!). Misses plane flight due to the bite -- but Air New Zealand airline refuses to refund ticket because they think a CROCODILE BITE isn't "unexpected" or "critical."

Corporations are worse than crocodiles. The croc probably hurt Melissa by mistake. The airline is pulling this shit on purpose.

Laws have proved a poor fix to problems around the aquarium pet trade. What other options do we have?

Advance copy of a new paper I contributed to! Open access, so free for everyone to read!

If anyone knows a journalist who wants REAL SCIENCE to go along with this viral video, tell them to contact me.

Because this is a cool video, but what people say it's showing is not entirely what it's showing. I did a thread on Twitter about it, and may try to get a blog post out, but I'm away from my desktop for a couple of days.

It's conference season! Planning a talk? Wondering how many slides you should have?

So, 100th birthday week of sexual harasser Richard Feynman, which will get overlooked as everyone paints him as a great scientist (which he was) and probably tries to portray him as a great guy (maybe not so much).

Scientific presentation tip: tell people what you found up front, instead of making them sit through a complex puzzle.
