Sparkwatch is my personal foray into science blogging.  Here I’ll post the various articles and multimedia that I make for class, as well as commentary and links to science news.  To get the ball rolling, though, here is a humorous bit I did for Professor Imbriglio’s science writing class back at Brown:

The Ten Scientific Commandments

I. Thou shalt have no other interests before the pursuit of truth.

II. Thou shalt not take the name of Einstein in vain.

III. Remember to feed the graduate students, occasionally.

IV. Honor the work of those who came before while you improve upon it.

V. Thou shalt not kill, unless compliant with the Animal Welfare Act of 1966 (7 USC, 2131-2159).

VI. Publish or perish.

VII. Thou shalt not plagiarize.

VIII. Thou shalt not bear false witness during peer review.

IX. Thou shalt not covet thy colleague’s endowment.

X. Thou shalt not covet thy colleague’s laboratory, or his postdocs, or his publications, or anything else belonging to thy colleague.
