If you are cool, you have visited my science blog, Protein Angst. If you are more than cool, you remember my last post, "Harry Potter and the Order of the T Cells."
You see, however, I am cooler than all of you, because today I received an e-mail...from the subject of the post:
Dear Sunil,One of his former postdocs came across it. I am so Google-able.
I enjoyed reading your blog about my talk at Univ. Michigan. You explained it better than I did.
K. George Chandy, MD, PhD
If any of you are truly interested in his work, he left a comment with a link to one of his papers.
I...don't know what to say. I didn't even think he'd ever see it. I put Protein Angst on my résumé, and I hope it helps. It would help if I actually updated it more than once every two or three months. But goddammit, I want the Internet to work for me. I want some prospective employer to stumble across my blog and say, "Hey, this kid knows how to explain science! Even the guy whose work he's explaining says so! We should totally hire him before someone else does. And give him a fuckload of money."

Heh. That's totally cool.

You are awesome and that is coolest thing ever. Some day a prospective employer will realize how dumb it would be to not hire you. I mean, I hope that some day is soon but, in the meantime, this is the coolest thing ever.

I could employ you as my personal guy-who-tells-me-cool-science-things. I could pay, um, a dollar an hour. Which I guess is not quite a fuckload.

That's amazing! Good job. I am definitely not as cool as you.
Aww! That is very, very cool. Go, you!
Oh wow, that is awesome. That's the highest compliment a writer can get. You should try to sell that article to a newspaper or a magazine!
Heh. I don't think it's really the right style.
I was thinking that. You'd have to change the tone a bit, but the basics are there.
That's really awesome, hon. :)
Dude uber cool! PA's totally going to make you one of these days.
I love Protein Angst by the way. They should take away all text books and have you write the things instead. PA makes me feel warm and squiggly about science, which is a minor miracle these days.
Yeah, blogs are cool like that.
why you are a bad ass mother (shut yo' mouth).
You ARE cooler than me. Well done.
He likes you!
I want your blog to work for me, too. Figure out how to do that, eh? You could write about my . . . Gilbert's syndrome? I dunno, I got nothin'.
This is why you are awesome.
That is awesome! You really are incredibly talented.
Nifty! Both the article and the compliment. And yes, science at its most 'Hey, that's interesting... I wonder why that happened, let's figure it out' is always cool.
So I'm clearly way behind on my flist reading and posting, but this is so cool P-C! Congrats! I would think that would make a lovely footnote to your resumé. Way to go!!
