In the event you did not notice the badge, the powers that be here at Scienceblogs.com are running a survey. They would like to solicit your input on some sort of “Premium Content” and, ahh, a fee structure.
I am just the messenger here. Even though I may possible have let some of my opinion slip on the Twitts, I’ll try to stay away from that here :-).

JaneB of Now, what was I doing? blog has the reins for the July edition of the Scientiae Blog Carnival. It struck my fancy.

So for this carnival, I thought it would be fun to revive an old game we played in my grad-lab, ‘Fantasy Institute’. The rules of the game are simple – you have been selected as the Director of a newly endowed research institute. It is your job to decide where the institute will be based, its codes of conduct, its structure, and who you will hire. Dream away! Tell us what would make your institute a haven for scientists. A ‘everyone must leave by 5pm’ rule? A woodland setting with squirrel feeders? Daily shipments from your favourite supplier?
Please submit posts on this, or any topic related to women in science, by emailing the permalink URL of your post to scientiaecarnival [a] gmail [dt] com by 11:59 pm GMT on Wednesday, June 30th. The carnival will be posted by July 1st.
