"The Cloud" - Great Ted Talk About Being A Scientist

"The Cloud" - Great Ted Talk About Being A Scientist

This is a great Ted Talk that speaks to a part
of conducting science that scientists do not
normally talk about to the lay public

Uri Alon, 2013, Why truly innovative science
demands a leap into the unknown
TEDGlobal 2013, Film 2013.
https://www.ted.com/talks/uri_alon_why_truly_innovative_science_demands_a_leap_into_the_unknown?language=en

There is a web page with materials that give
advice about being a scientist. It is:

Materials for Naturing Young Scientists,
Uri Alon Lab, at:
http://wws.weizmann.ac.il/mcb/UriAlon/index.php?q=materials-nurturing-scientists

It has papers about choosing research topics,
how not to a seminar, and so forth.

For an unrelated story about misadventures
in the peer-review process, go see;
