FANMAIL for learning, remembering and unleashing creative monsters
I don’t get fanmail. I write fanmail. I write fanmail for two reasons.
It helps me remember facts by regurgitating them into a letter.
I get to be creative and get massive lols out of it.
Example – A letter to Henry Oldenburg
Sometimes I get frustrated by how science is communicated through journals, which is the current method. Sure, it’s good that scientists have this easily accessible way to share their research, as developed by Henry Oldenburg. However, I no good with words and not understand much of what in journals.
In a letter, I thanked Henry Oldenburg for making the first ever peer-review science journal, and for keeping the riff-raff out.
I will never forget this because I wrote this.
