A reminder: the account I mainly use is http://musisci.tumblr.com
I can’t follow anyone from there, though.
About Cognitive Surplus:
We’re the type of people who will proudly nerd out about the properties of water and how they make it kinda magical-and want products that do the same. When we brought home our periodic table shower curtain, we were pretty shocked to see carbon listed as a noble gas (though we did get a chuckle imagining all the carbon-based life and materials suddenly being non-cohesive gases floating away in the breeze). It was with that inspiration that we set out to be a source of beautifully designed home goods that didn’t sacrifice quality of information or material.
Technically, this is my “primary” Tumblr and MusiSci is my “secondary” Tumblr, and there is no way to switch that in their system. That means that I can only follow people from this account, but the account I use more (and which has more followers) is really MusiSci. So if you’re following this, but are not already following that, then maybe do that now, and discover that I actually post slightly more regularly! It’s all about musicians and scientists.
My former graduate department is doing something very cool. They’ve launched a mandatory course for all incoming graduate students to learn about different careers and skills for career development. Aside from being a former student of the department I was also one of the panelists in the pilot course, AND I have a personal interest in careers for science graduates, so this is very exciting.
