Communication is the Achilles heel of science. Whether between scientists and the public, scientists and potential funding sources, or even just amongst themselves, it is a minefield of epic proportions. I don’t know how anything gets accomplished. And it scares me, because the result is that the average American is more likely to be listening to the almost-always-bullshit touted by the likes of Dr. Oz than to actual legitimate sources. I could go on and on and on, so instead I’ll just … not.
In other news, I miss my little family. Work travel is for the birds.
