Yes, also a lot of failed experiment of course 😅
Interestingly enough, my PI A Prochiantz was very active in #scicomm, (books, radio show, theater…).
(except for occasionally considering selling French fries on beaches when all experiments would go crap, of course. Anyone here with this kind of escape “fantasy”?)
poke to those on twitter (funny the French are not there so much, I'd like to see stats about researcher's presence on social media broken down by country)
So a bit of advice: PIs, if you want your people to stand up for science in the eyes of the public, teach by example.
You'll note if you're following that the fries selling option was not retained.
Plus, I thought I'd finish writing my paper with my co-author... and I never did (and I still feel guilt about it!)
1 #scicomm is still a place where you can create your position
2 don't take my story as a path to follow as it's pretty peculiar!
In an economy where institutions fights for funds/talents, it's important to shine more than others.
