This amazing Philly neuroscientist and artist is a finalist in the NSF's Science and Engineering Visualization Challenge for his painting Hippocampus II. It's a cross section of a rat's hippocampus rendered in enamel and gold leaf! I've been lucky enough to see Greg's paintings in person and they are awe-inspiringly gorgeous. And to boot, he's one of the nicest and most humble guys I've ever met. If you are so inclined, please register and vote for his painting. Then head over to his website (http://www.gregadunn.com/) and let him know you voted and he'll enter you into a drawing to win a print of your choice.

If you are a fan of Steve, check out this footage from a 1990 interview with him from the WGBH archives. He's like, what, 35 here? It's raw footage, so not all polished, you'll feel like a voyeur. It's amazing to see what has changed, and how much hasn't. Huge thank you to Barry Nelson for the original share.

It's 1940. Neils Bohr needs to melt his two Nobel Prize medals before the Nazis find him. They're gold - notoriously unreactive. What does he do?

It makes a single panda cam seem... inadequate.

This sensationalist "portrait of a forager" piece really pissed me off. I have a hard time believing any self-respecting forager doesn't consider the sustainability of not only his own, but all wild foragers' gathering practices. Will it be there for you or anyone else (human or non-) next year if you don't let it go to seed? "We are standing in a gold mine!” and “OK, let’s start pillaging!" are exactly the mindset that landed our wild fisheries where they are today.
