The Open Notebook is a terrific site that explains the the story behind the best science stories. You should check it out for their journalistic work (full disclosure: I’m on their board of advisors), but they have also featured me in their ongoing series A Day In The Life, which gives a behind-the-scenes peek at the daily work of science journalists.
You can check out the tale — including my favorite thing I ever stole from a hotel room in Iceland — here. (Pictured: on the north side of Eyjafjallajökull volcano, June 2012. Photo by Jeff Kanipe.)
