tagged me with the current meme going around:
1. Sum up your blogging motivation, philosophy and experience in exactly 10 words.
2. Tag 10 other blogs to perpetuate the meme.
Well, see, I hate tagging others, so I'll just try to do the first part of this -Industry teching is different from academia; let me tell you!
I started writing a blog because I thought techs were underrepresented in the science blog community, and because industry scientists were also underrepresented in the science blog community. Being both, I figured people might be interested in what I had to say. It's hard to know anything about pharma before you come here, so I thought I could provide some sort of insight to those curious about how industry works.
What I learned, of course, is that industry is both very much like academia (science is tough no matter where you work), and not at all like academia (your HR department can be very interested in what you have to say on your blog). I keep blogging because I value the sense of community that I've found from blogging, and I think that's pretty universal.
