Interesting things I learned via Twitter April 17-27
I have a lot to say about E.O. Wilson's article on scientists vs. math, but I'm not sure that I'd contribute a novel voice since so much has already been said on the topic. Instead, I used this Storify to highlight a few of the pieces I came across (via Twitter), including Jeremy Fox's post which contains even more links.
My Interesting Things for April 17-27 also includes a writing tip, some opinions on the future of scientific publication, and a piece of advice about creating a backup plan when your goals depend on other people or things.
