The nice people over at Labguru have asked me to draw comics for them again, which makes me very very happy. Given that summer is fast-approaching, we decided to kick off with the Prof’s view on conferences.
For being the country that practically invented banking, Switzerland is pretty bad at its banking services.
Actually, coming to think of it, that’s brilliant banking. At least they’re open about it. Some day, perhaps, the other banks will learn such honesty. We can only hope.
This is my first comic from Lausanne, Switzerland where I’ve taken a science journalist role with the lauded EPFL, covering the awesome research of the School of Basic Sciences. It’s quite a switch for me, and I’m having a great time learning about things like superconductivity, particle physics and retarded interactions (that’s a science thing. Honest). I’ll keep you posted when my articles pop up on the website.
It’s good to be back. The Microscope missed you all.
Dear Microscope friends,
I am aware that the website has suffered terrible neglect in the last couple of weeks. The reason is that I am currently in the last stretch of moving from the UK to Switzerland for the foreseeable future, and, as you can imagine, I have my hands full of other things than drawing tablets. It was easier coming to the UK than leaving.
So, once again, I beg your patience. I should be able to update the blog soon, but there are going to be some expected disruptions in service for the next month or so.
And, incidentally, if any of you are in/around Lausanne from March onwards, I’d love to meet you!
