Crickson's electric eye

Originally from the UK, I am currently living with Spiderbaby in the sub-arctic city of Umeå in the north of Sweden.

Currently I am working part-time on a research project at Norrlands universitetssjukhus while studying Swedish. In addition I am trying to make my photography hobby pay by making some of my images available to buy from twenty20 or from me directly.

Interesting things I read recently:

"Only one in five people born [in the UK] since 1975 believes in God".

"For every dollar invested in the Human Genome project, $141 was returned to the US economy". Francis Collins, NIH

I am Pavlovs_dog on PSN and would be happy to link up with PS3-owning mobloggers : )

Too Much Information: The first album I ever bought was the Fraggle Rock soundtrack. Pretty cool, eh? I was only 16 : )

Burning snow

Launch night for the Umeå: European Capital of Culture event

Seed to shirt

(viewed 275 times)
This week I finally received my T-shirt from Planet Money's seed-to-shirt project! This was a kickstarter-funded project to trace the manufacture of a T-shirt from the cotton fields to the factory. It really is fascinating, if you have any interest at all in the lives of the people who make the stuff you are probably wearing right now, check out seed-to-shirt and the tumblr is here.

BTW the picture on the shirt is a play on Keynes idea of 'animal spirits'

A belated Bonfire night

After being rained-off in the week, the British community of Umeå (plus special guests) finally get together to burn stuff and make stuff go Bang.

3d printing!

The dept recently installed a 3d printer and this week I got to use it! I designed an adapter plate for the inverted fluorescence microscope that will allow easy live imaging of cells in petri dishes without the faffing that has been necessary up to now. This design is a variant of one made by a colleague which I have changed with TinkerCAD to fit our petri dishes.

It's soooo cool!!!!
