If you don’t subscribe to the New Scientist, you’re missing out. (Yeah, yeah, they do talk about slime mould but, hey, no one’s perfect.)

I’ve been reading NS for about a year now; it’s the Economist of popular science journals, that is, the best–above all others like a cirrus cloud. The Sept 18th issue should be particularly fine: it will feature a nifty little piece by (modest blush) me. Yes, me. In the New Scientist! First Nature, now NS. I’m beaming, thrilled to my geekish core.
