That was an excellent article.
Is it weird, though, that it makes me want to get into Science that much more?
It's probably because I can easily see myself being so devoted to my research to survive the publish or perish mentality. It also shows that science isn't just playing with beakers and microscopes--it's politics, late nights, etc. All these extra aspects make it even more interesting!
However, I'm young, and still an early undergraduate. Without a doubt my opinions will change over time
Nik makes a great point about how Science is losing it's focus though, once it turned into a job instead of a hobby.
