I'm looking for a tame biochemist who I can bother with silly molecular physics questions about chlorophyll and excited states and charge separation and things.

Can anyone help me out?

#introduction I am a mathematician and cognitive scientist by training and troublemaker by inclination. I have been following the mastodon universe from the sidelines for a while now but a recent article (and facebook's tanking stock!) made me create an account here.

Ninety Percent of Everything: Inside Shipping, the Invisible Industry That Puts Clothes on Your Back, Gas in Your Car, and Food on Your Plate by Rose George

This is one of two books (the other: box) I'm reading to kick-off research for my own TBA trip on a cargo ship to write and explore what it means to disconnect among the artifacts of our globalized consumerist society. If you have suggestions let me know!

Tonight I'm at biotech without borders for a NSF funded talk about genetic engineering of humans. Looks like it'll be a discussion format. Before we start Dr. Jorgensen is explaining the challenges of opening up the scientific enterprise.

Are there researchers that get (partly) funded through Patreon? There are probably enough points to be made against this but I find the idea intriguing.

@bgcarlisle That profile picture is most excellent. I first encountered that term second hand and was told it was from a blog post about Star Trek. Where does that image come from?
