Got a couple of papers to review as so called "double blind dates" where both authors and reviewers are unknown to each other. Two thoughts:
1. I know who you are, even though your name is not there (and yes it's a nice paper)...
2. Will never work for us because we generally follow up on our own previous work.
So its like a double blind date where all participants are (usually) known to each other from before.... I'd call it a double-blind date of people in the same neighborhood. Is it any better?

The PI Blog
This blog exists because my wife seemed a bit tired of being the only recipient of my random pontifications on life and Science for many years; and gently encouraged me to vent in a blog instead. From time to time, I put down thoughts that occur to me as I naiively stumble through a life in Science - bestowed upon me by accident (literally!). Please keep in mind that these musings are rather obvious things of little or no use to anyone, and are certainly not personally targeted in any way, even though they are obviously derived from my experiences. OK, enough said.
