Check this out (thanks Josh!): http://boingboing.net/2012/08/23/the-colorful-results-of-playin.html Random group post of the week.
Since we were discussing setting up a forum similar to this (http://www.researchgate.net/) a while back I thought I’d post it here. It looks like it’s catching on pretty well now (1.3 million users). I think, for science the other forums like academia.edu aren’t nearly as useful.
