I recently wrote a slightly whinging blog post about the time I spent updating all my online profiles after I had my most recent paper published. To my surprise, that experience got mentioned in a recent news article in Nature. It’s a sidebar that only appears in the online version of the story, not the print version, alas.
It’s a good reminder that when you write in public, you never know where your influence stops.
Updating, updating, and updating some more
