For All Times, For All Peoples: How Replacing the Kilogram Empowers Industry

If this looks more polished than my usual blog posts, that’s because it is! I took this directly from the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) website.

Activism, homelessness and a new kind of museum

When should museums be neutral and “just present the facts?” When should museums stake out a position and try to create change? Readership of the guest post “ BeyondNeutrality ,” by Sean Kelley of Easter State Penitentiary, is at 17,000 page views and climbing. That makes it, by a wide margin, the most read post on this blog--which impelled me to look for ad...
