I've taking a liking to Comte lately. Definitely one of my favourite amongst the French cheeses.

Collaborative Tools in Science

The question of how to de good collaborative work, particularly in my own work as a scientist, is one that I've been thinking about quite a bit lately. I've decided that a journal dedicated to this topic is in order. So, I've started Collaborative Tools in Science, a journal dedicated to the discussion of methods, tools and problems in collaborative work in science.

Tiny view to the sky

Tiny view to the sky, originally uploaded by smithco.

I was down at the lake again topday with my camera. On a whim I took the this photo. Not too fancy a set up done on one try.

Somehow, I ended up with fantastic lighting, colours, framing, depth of field and focus. It's like everything went right with this photo.

I have to boast a bit, I think it may be one of the best flower photos I've taken.
