I'm about to finish my PhD. I have probably said this a couple of times, but it is currently the topic of the day in my life - forgive me for repeating myself. Oh, I actually do have a final date: 21st of March. (Soon, I should start writing...)
I was visiting Stanford about two weeks ago. If nothing goes wrong with funding, I will start a PostDoc there in 2008 (right after the trip to New Zealand). Looks like a great place to work and live ("California here we come, la di da di da di daaaa....")
We have just submitted a paper that I quite like (again on the evolution of sex). I hope the journal / referees like it as much as I do. It is good news for all the people who think that parasites are the reason we have sex (if you are not a biologist, this must sound very strange do you, I understand that...)
Other than science
Not much. Funny how reddit, my favourite resource, struggles with growing up. Welcome to democracy!
Plus, an art gallery in Berlin will exhibit the onethousandpaintings project.
Here are my favorite links: HIV Gun (NSFW, but highly recommended), the sad truth about Calvin and Hobbes, the difference between science and religion, and an amazing video of people trying to evade simple questions.
