Jungleboy Transparent

Day Jobbery -- we made the Times!

My group has a paper appearing in today's issue of Science magazine.

That's always good. I'm not an author on this one (though part of the sample prep was done in the Giant Robot I'm in charge of automating), but I am on one of the reference papers.

Our Communications department and my manager, Stuart Parkin, asked me to prepare a simple "cartoon" explaining the result for the press kit, which I did yesterday. Today the news hit science blogs all over the place. Google "IBM Ionic liquid Gate" to find some of them; most did not include my artwork.

Then the New York TImes blog published it. And used my art as the banner for the article!

Color me happy.
