A Nerd's Paradise 

The stories in the mainstream media the past couple of weeks have been a science geek's smorgasboard: Last week's Parkfield Earthquake, the pursuit of the X Prize for the first reusable civilian spaceship, and Mount St. Helens decides to wake up.

On that note, and since it's Monday and it's my blog, here's a nice magnification of freshwater plankton.

It's a nice change to see something other than politics and the War on Terror in the news.

Not to mention that the freakin' NOBEL PRIZES are awarded this week. Haven't seen Chemistry yet, but I'm 3 for 5 on Medicine and Physics (Richard Axel and Linda Buck spoke at UNC last year, and I met Politzer at Caltech)
