Focusing Our Efforts

Word has come down that it may be time to focus our efforts on the UW Board of Trusties (contact information below), to help keep the University of Wyoming Geological Museum open and the jobs associated with it. Hopefully there will be more information as to why soon. Please keep checking back for additional updates as they become available. Remember that is was only last week when Brent Breithaupt, director of the museum, got the university a ton of free press when he was featured in an article on MSNBC, which reached people around the globe! I guess globall free press is not important to the university.

I would love to thank those of you who have helped to spread the word: Julia, Sarah, PZ Myers, Brian, Rissa and MDR (and all of you I may have missed)!

The petition has gone from ~450 signatures yesterday to 801 as I write this. Awesome work folks! Please keep spreading the word!!

ReBecca, I just realized I hadn't hit you with an Accretionary Wedge reminder. I'm not even sure if you're aware of it. We have a new edition going up soon, around the theme of "When and where would you most like to visit in person to witness something first-hand?" Are you going to be able to join our time warp? (more details at the link) We're trying to get The AW back on it's feet, and would love to have you participate. Sorry for the short notice, but late submissions will be added on as they arrive. On a personal note, we don't have any Dino entries yet, and I'd love to have one to post. I know this is the busiest time of year for many field people, but just a short post, maybe? Please?

Hi Lockwood,

When will it go up? I will see what I can do. I remember seeing the notice about it but have been gone so much I had not gotten around to writing a post for it. I will see what I can do.

I'm planning on assembling the post on Sunday, and probably put it up when I go home- which will be early Monday morning for much of the world. My longer, more picture heavy posts tend to cause me no end of frustration, but I've already started putting text and links together in a word pad document, so it may be smoother. As I noted though, I'll add stuff in late for a while (a couple of weeks). But of course, the real traffic comes in the first couple of days. Thanks for the quick response.

No worries. I will see what I can do.
