Not living up to the hype.

Friday, October 31st, 2008

This blog is mentioned in a piece in the U.R. newsletter RichmondNow, which makes it all the more embarrassing that I haven’t posted anything to it for ages.

In case you’re desperately searching for blog posts to read, let me mention a couple of good ones by colleagues of mine.

Students who have to give talks on their research should really look at Bill Ross’s post on how to give a good math talk. Some of it’s math-specific, but most of it’s just good general advice. Many eminent scientists could benefit from following it.

Also, Matt Trawick’s blog has a lot of good stuff, including an explanation of what undergraduate research is all about.
