Do it for Charles Musters!
Or do it for Charles Darwin.
Or do it for the fun of sailing.
But do it nonetheless:

...send in a Darwin (£10) or a Jackson ($20), spread the word, encourage colleagues to bookmark the site and root through their labcoat pockets for a donation...

Check the website and the blog. Then decide if you think this is a worthy cause.

The donations have started coming in. The biggest so far is $100. If you give more by the end of the tenth day of this drive, you will become a lucky owner of a copy of The Open Laboratory.


I did not know you where here until i saw your comment on Tillerman's blog. See it does work :-)

BTW there is another blog form a friend of mine with the same or almost same name. written for a S.F. newspaper blog

Anyway, nice site..."I'll be back"... the Governater
