I'm about to start a year-long fellowship at Harvard, immersing myself in geeky science awesomeness, and you can follow along with my newsletter The Fellowship of Three Things.
The Fellowship is exactly what it sounds like: Three cool things that I've learned, delivered to you each week. There might be photos, scans of documents from archives, interesting short facts, a behind-the-scenes lab tour video, a short interview with an interesting researcher ... all sorts of stuff.
