the Grand Challenges in Global Health Initiative, with support from the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, put out a call for a better designed, more pleasure-inducing condom.

And with this post, I formally give up posting news about other people's work and research. Expect a lot fewer posts here. I will still post when I feel I do something particularly creative- current projects include April Fool's Day, an Easter Egg Hunt for my son and a hopefully scathing review of a creationist book a friend has driven me to read. Remember, I am a creative-ist, not a creationist! Anyway, my own personal creative production has not markedly increased while working on this blog so I need to find other ways to grow. I still want to be creative; perhaps now I will be creative rather than merely think about it.
