Check Elastic Before Jumping my ‘SF short’ is appearing in the 22 June issue of Nature. Funny, the envelope I received the magazine in was addressed to Dr. Neal Asher. I guess that’s a precaution the editorial staff take with all their contributors. I understand this magazine is a rather prestigious place in which to have your science articles published. My bit is a snapshot into the future that finishes it off. Very nicely presented. Now, can someone tell me what ‘The journal can now be accessed on some 8 million desktops worldwide through site licenses.’ means? It sounds bloody good to me.
