#juniorlab My sincere apologies. I am really excited by the enthusiasm I see for the arduino project. Thank you all for helping each other!
#juniorlab Thanks to all J-lab students for working hard this week, and especially today when I had to leave!
Since I'm at UNM, it's not too hard to go to the law library to look up court cases, etc. But why aren't public court cases, laws, etc. easily available to the public on the internet? It's quite similar to the BS situation with closed-access publications of publicly-funded scientific and medical research. Must change both.

Paul Graham: "What You Can't Say" - http://www.paulgraham.com/say...
"If a statement is false, that's the worst thing you can say about it. You don't need to say that it's heretical. And if it isn't false, it shouldn't be suppressed. So when you see statements being attacked as x-ist or y-ic (substitute your current values of x and y), whether in 1630 or 2030, that's a sure sign that something is wrong. When you hear such labels being used, ask why." - Steve Koch from Bookmarklet

Another milestone today: First dream I can remember where I argued someone into submission via New Mexico statutes and case law. And I was right!
A new milestone: first health professional I've seen that will email extra info! Props to Heidi @ Northside fam. med.! #abq #albuquerque

"A carpenter, let us say, makes a door for a cabinet. If the door does not hang straight, the carpenter does not say, "I will not change that door; it is an expression of my individuality; who cares if it will not close?" Instead, the carpenter removes the door and works on it until it fits. That attitude, applied to writing, could be our salvation. If we thought more like carpenters, academic writers could find a route out of the trap of ego and vanity. Escaped from that trap, we could simply work on successive drafts until what we have to say is clear." - Steve Koch from Bookmarklet

Dear Friends, Tenure is a no. Sincere and huge thanks to all of you who supported me! https://accounts.google.com/Service...
I'm sorry to hear that Steve. - Andrew Lang
Thanks, Andy. No need for sorries, though! Everything I say in the letter is true, I have been very lucky and am feeling very optimistic about the future. - Steve Koch
That sucks, but it seems you sort of expected it. Extraordinarily positive letter - I wouldn't have been able to write that, had I been in your shoes. - Björn Brembs
Realy sorry to hear that - and impressed with your letter. Takes a lot of integrity to not take those kinds of decisions personally. - Kubke
I am in awe of the maturity, integrity, and clarity of thinking you've shown here. I couldn't have done it. Really sorry this didn't work out better. - Cameron Neylon
Great letter! - Egon Willighagen
Nice letter. Still depressing to see that papers ("... deprioritize EVERYTHING except for writing peer-reviewed publications and grants...") is still the only way. But clearly, it will be UNM's loss. - Rajarshi Guha
There's a good deal of irony in the fact that just before I read this, I was over at Anthony's open notebook discussing his research with him. UNM has missed an opportunity to be ahead of the curve. - Bill Hooker
Not sure what to say, Steve, so I'll just mention a typo: Arst. Just this week, I gave a talk on career perspectives for physicists http://slidesha.re/DPG2012... , and I had checked whether you already had reported back about your tenure decision, in the hope of being able to point to that one example of someone who consciously chose to go for what makes sense rather than what... more... - Daniel Mietchen
I'm sorry, Steve. - RepoRat
I'm very sorry to hear this news. - Dan Gezelter
Bummer. Really sorry to hear about the sad news. - Joe
I don't know a lot about it, but sounds fantastic: wikimedia wikidata project http://blog.wikimedia.org/2012...

Scientific publishing is headed towards inevitable reform. Anthony is working from the bottom up. PLoS is working from the top down. Lots of others in between. Most of us have the power to work from the bottom up, so why not join Anthony, Mark, others? - Steve Koch from Bookmarklet
