Stuff that occurs to me

All of my 'how to' posts are tagged here. The most popular posts are about blocking and private accounts on Twitter, also the science communication jobs list. None of the science or medical information I might post to this blog should be taken as medical advice (I'm not medically trained).

Think of this blog as a sort of nursery for my half-baked ideas hence 'stuff that occurs to me'.

Clip art includes this picture under "scientists" :)

Clip art is my new favourite thing and I've been using it quite a lot recently for work. Out of curiosity I wondered what it had for scientists and there's a pretty good range of diverse people (gender, diversity, boffin-ness - there are a couple with mad hair) and roles (lab scientists, rocket scientists etc)... but I also found this. Does it depict Dolly the sheep?

I've always assumed that Clip Art pictures can be freely used but if this is yours and you want me to take it down then I will :)

Comment policy: I enthusiastically welcome corrections and I entertain polite disagreement ;) Because of the nature of this blog it attracts a LOT - 5 a day at the moment - of spam comments (I write about spam practices,misleading marketing and unevidenced quackery) and so I'm more likely to post a pasted version of your comment, removing any hyperlinks.

Comments written in ALL CAPS LOCK will be deleted and I won't publish any pro-homeopathy comments, that ship has sailed I'm afraid (it's nonsense).
