Google doodle for Saul Bass

Via Slate’s Brow Beat blog: Today, Google’s homepage logo honors the 93rd birthday of Saul Bass, who designed the credits sequences for some truly excellent classic films. And, since his work is a major inspiration for the look of this very site, how can we not include the tribute here?

Surveying LGBTQ folks in STEM


So, I’ve already announced this in other venues, but, what the heck: I’m collaborating on a new survey of lesbian, gay, bisexual, and trans* folks working in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) fields. If that describes you, my collaborator and I would really like you to answer some questions. It’s all anonymous (unless you volunteer for a followup interview), and it’ll help fill a real gap in our understanding.
