Thanks for all the comments to the previous post! And please, non-chemists who read or have a use for the magazine, please feel free to chime in as well.

Just to clear up some confusion, though, this is only an advisory position, and there are plenty of other people from academia and industry who also serve in the same capacity. I'm doing the same job I have been (and writing this blog the same way I have been as well!) Nothing's been affected, but it seems from the comments that some people have thought otherwise.

What will be affected around here this week is posting, which will be irregular. I'll try to get some things up, but it'll be haphazard. And I'll report back on the meeting with the C&E News folks as well.

Congratulations on being selected to serve in an advisory capacity. I'm sure that C&E News will find your perspective very helpful. Your clarification in this post is very helpful.

I think the interest and bitterness present in the previous comments show that C&EN does have a role to fill and that, despite protests to the contrary, all hope is not lost. Chemists like chemistry and are frustrated at current state of affairs.

Aren't you already on the advisory committee Derek?

I'm read the boring little column at the front about the various committee's and so forth and down the bottom under advisory committee is the name "Derek Lowe".

I don't have a CEN at hand because I throw them away almost as soon as I get them.
