Ned Kahn

On NPR’s Morning Edition today…They were talking with an artist named Ned Kahn. He’s an interesting guy who works mathematics and physics in to his art work. He apparently especially loves doing wind sculptures.
Anyway, do you all know that weird thing on the northeast corner of the engineering center at CU that you can see from the intersection of Regent and Colorado? Looks like a digital TV screen but it never has good programming on (You know, “Soul Train” and shit like that)? I never could figure out what it was. Turns out, it’s one of his.

Oh, you didn’t know about that art installation? I always thought it was kind of cool, myself. Too bad it’s fallen into rather a sad state of disrepair. In the Engineering Center overlooking it is a plaque commemorrating it.

Visiting lots of museum’s in Europe this summer, I realized that I like sculpture far more than almost any other art form (music is up there)… Ned’s work seems pretty cool. Thanks for the link!

I had heard it was some kind of art, but never was sure about it… though it looks pretty cool 🙂

On a side note about CU — what do people think about CU president Betsy Hoffman resigning because of the whole football mess, while the football coach, Gary Barnett, not only still has a job but he’s being paid an extra $60,000 for some “lost” income?

So I meant to have two links in that above comment, but failed by being silly and using the html codes of “a href” and stuff… but here, in a much more graceless manner, are the things I meant to link:

He should definitely be gone, and she should have known better than to let him off with a slap on the wrist.

My first first-author paper!

Just wanted to share that my first first-author paper is now online! In the journal Stem Cells and Development, here’s my paper on “Roles of Integrins in Human Induced Pluripotent Stem Cell Growth on Matrigel and Vitronectin.”

The Future of Scientific Publishing

Just read a fascinating (if lengthy) essay on disruptive technology and the future of scientific publishing. Well worth the read!


Just wanted to share’s Visual Guide to Deflation, which is quite explanatory.

All Things Stem Cell

Hey all Paradoxdruid readers! I recently started up a blog on stem cells that I’d love you all to take a look at:
