    I really like the doll hacking. That should be a mandatory project to help children appreciate that if they don’t like limits that have been externally imposed that they can change them.

    RE: Funding Crunch in Science

    “And two, it will send a message to young scientists, or potential scientists that this country is not committed to science, exactly at the time that our major competitor countries… are in fact investing in science.”

    And this is too true. As a native USer I’m looking outside the country for jobs when I graduate this spring with my PhD. Not only is funding going to get harder to find but they are also cutting budgets to education in general, meaning that backlog of PhDs with no academic position is getting longer and longer.

    Great stories. Love the children getting published in a peer-reviewed journal… and fully posable dolls! YEAH!
