Day Jobbery -- we made the Times!

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

http://www.sciencemag.org/content/339/6126/1402.abstract

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.
