Short stroppy reporter with a funny accent. Likes to eat sushi. No head for alcohol. Caffeine addiction.
Currently running Saturday Skypecasts on science journalism as part of a tutoring course with the World Federation of Science Journalists, Mentoring reporters in Kenya, Ghana and Nigeria (or is it the other way around, and they're mentoring me?) Edited three very irritating books on media studies this year, and have a book on 10 ways to get and stay healthy, meant for kids throughout Africa, being published probably at the end of the year by Heinemann.

My February 2008

Feb 11 to 14 At SciDev.Net in London for the launch of the new website

Feb 8 to 10 In Doha, Qatar for World Federation of Science Journalism mentoring programme

Feb 14 In the Boland for a mean tennis party

Hello Marina Number One, am I still sending you wrong-Marina'd messages? I thought I'd stopped that. Sigh .... How is life on your side of the ocean? Are you going to the big AIDS conference in Mexico City?

Hi Christina! I'm still getting used to this net, that is why I took so long to answer you! But I've already got used to receive messages from you that in fact are to the other Marina. =)
Don't worry, I do the same all the time!

Ken plays gigs? Wow. A life outside journalism. Whatever works, is my view. Are there still trains via Matjiesfontein?

just let me know what I need to do, and at what time and for how long.

Did you get my message about the space thing? I can't go, but transport etc all arranged, so I can send Ken. is that ok? He's just trying to see if he can get a train home because he's playing in a gig on Wednesday evening

Ask if you can still go ... if you can still go.

On that Space invite, it says accommodation is sponsored by the NRF. So who did you say we should ask for petrol money?
And I thought it was at the end of November. It's next week!

true... will declare sushi as a field of interest.

oh dear. Everyone else on your comment wall is talking about research, and I'm talking about sushi therapy. If we meet at 1, I think you'll still be in town on time. We can be restrained. Or eat really fast.
Either way... can leave by 2ish. Sound ok?

Actually, I met Charles! We had a few longish chats over a beer or two.

I'm going to be editing the Research HIghlights section of Nature for a while. Should be awesome. A good chance for me to work on skills that I haven't yet had to develop: laying out, editing, pushing myself to break out a more from my biological comfort zone.

Do you ever come to London?
