Introducing a new blog: kidney punch

Sciblogs has a new blog, huzzah!

We’re very luck indeed to be syndicating the blog ($100 Dialysis [2]) of University of Otago’s Dr John Pickering (aka kiwiski, for those of you who know him as that), under the blog title kidney punch [3].

As John says in his ‘About’ section:

Of the writing of blogs there is no end.  So why another? Because I can and because the world needs $100 Dialysis.  $100 Dialysis is a vision.  I try and articulate this in the first blog post [4].  Expect other blogs on the topic.

I also write because as a publicly funded scientist I believe I have a responsibility to be public about what I do.  At some stage I shall try and share (in lay language) just what I do to justify my existence — my bit of the exploration project called science.  For those who want a sneak preview you can find links to most of my papers on google citations [5].

Welcome, John!
