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'.

London: free showing of 'His Last Vow' plus 1 day symposium on all things #Sherlock

Hooray for algorithms. Eventbrite randomly suggested this free one-day symposium at UCL on Friday 11 April which includes several talks on all sorts of aspects of Sherlock Holmes with quite a big focus on the recent BBC series but also a lunchtime screening of 'His Last Vow'. Not bad.

Also, if you like the music from the show both the composers have events coming up at which some of the music might be played.

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).
