PhD Comics Partnership

  1. Jun 18, 2008 #1
    We have struck a partnership with PhD Comics! "Piled Higher and Deeper" (PhD) is the comic strip by Jorge Cham about life (or the lack thereof) in academia.

    We will be featuring a forum in General Discussion called "PhD Comics" that will be updated with the newest comics strips. Furthermore you can see if a new comic is available by scanning the link list on the homepage under the sciam news.

    In return PhD comics will feature a box on each of their comic pages on their website encouraging his readers to sign up and post their comments in the "PhD Comics" forum here at PF.

    Cool! Those are pretty nice comics at times. I like a recent one when he graphs one's response time to the question "what do you do" against the length of time you've been in academia. I found myself in just that situation last weekend when my wife told my father and brother that a paper I had been working on for the last two years was accepted for publication. I tried to describe the motivation, methodology, etc, only to get puzzled/blank expressions in return.

    Sounds like a good way to get a bunch of grad students to learn about PF and get more knoweldge base around here.

    This comic strip is hilarious! I have been reading it for some time now, so having them posted on PF will really streamline my web browsing!

    Could the strips be titled with all dates having two digits (06/09/2008 vs 06/9/2008)? That way if people sort by thread tite, the PhD strips would conveniently be sorted by date.

    It's fed by an RSS feed, so no, sorry :)
