It's pretty rare that the work I do garners much attention beyond scientific circles.  But today I had the odd moment of seeing it talked about in the news (even made the front of the Google News Science section!). I wonder how many of my 15 minutes are left?

Anyway, quality of coverage varies quite a bit. But it's still fun to see it

And now back to my inconspicuous hideout . . .

As anyone who isn't a close friend might have noticed, I basically never share anything publicly on G+, using it mostly to communicate with friends and family and to follow folks more interesting than myself. But a good friend of mine has helped put this together, and I decided it was a good time to make my first public post.

I think the Wild Me project is a wonderful way to get people involved with and more aware of science and conservation. Too often, we treat the splendor of our natural world as an abstract idea and the work done to study it even more so. Here's an opportunity to support an effort to bridge that gap and get a cool whale shark for a pet at the same time!
