Argument that unpaid internships are supporting class privilege in journalism. First thought was that the same is almost certainly true for scientific research assistants as well. Thoughts? http://bit.ly/11B8kDG

Regarding the new science prizes offered by Milner, +Mark Zuckerberg, +Sergey Brin, etc:
"'I find it offensive that people are trying to either borrow the prestige of the Nobel, or buy it,' says Frank Wilczek, a physicist at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology in Cambridge, who won a share of the Nobel Prize in Physics in 2004. 'The suspicion is that these provide more benefit to the egos of the founders than to science.'"
Yeah dude, totally unlike the prestigious and exalted ALFRED NOBEL prize which totally wasn't about a man trying to buy his way out of terrible public perception in order to sculpt a legacy.

One nice thing about writing (blogging, peer-review, whatever) is rereading your own words years later and seeing where you agree or disagree with your past self.

Exactly 10 months ago I responded to a friend's email about the Jonah Lehrer plagiarism scandal, "He'll have a redemption. May write a memoir about it." In the Gladwell/Lehrer vein I'll dub this the "Stockholm sucker effect": http://slate.me/11MNfG7

When is it wise to blog or talk about your academic research work before you submit it for publication?
Part of my take:
"If you're worried about your legacy and want to be the one to pop into the scientific thread of history and yell "FIRST POST!" on an idea, then you should interrogate your reasons for blogging in the first place."
