Public lectures and I found my stylus!

Yessssssssssss. That is the sound of me rediscovering my tablet computer's stylus. You don't realize how expensive a piece of plastic can be until you start thinking you'll have to replace one. Fortunately, I don't have to replace one, so here's a celebratory doodle:

The iGEM team (next post, I'll stop writing about iGEM in the next post) hosted a public lecture today about synthetic biology. There were a ton of people there which was pretty awesome and various misconceptions about the recent Venter Institute announcement were addressed. I did get the feeling the panel was preaching to the choir a little bit about some issues, but with the number of people there, I'm sure the topic was new to a sizeable group.

In other news, I appear to have pulled a gluteal muscle for no apparent reason. This is not so fun. I would go so far as to recommend against pulling such muscles, in fact!

  1. From the Wikipedia article:
    Treatment: Studies have shown that exercise and massage are effective at reversing and protecting against atrophy of these muscles.

    That's sort of awkward.
