“Dear David, We are preparing the media release for the paper on jurassic snakes. If you keep the post, they will not give us the importance we need to present the news. Could you retire the article until dec 27 or 28? Our article will be published aprox in dec 29. I will appreciate your help on this.”
This is a case of convergent discovery.
|For those who blackwash everything I do, hope this case of convergent discovery turns you around, if even a little. For those of you who saw the Dec. 06 post, evidently you got a sneak preview of an upcoming paper.
