"And to add to my already long comment, SE just came out with the documentation aspect of their site. So instead of the standard question+answer format, people collaboratively contribute to documents (kind of like a wiki from my first impression),…"

Harrison commented on Cole Mathis's blog post New Peer Review Paradigms for Astrobiology and Origin of Life
"I really like your ideas Cole. Perhaps this is too much of a paradigm shift (or just a flawed idea), but I think that instead of using paper count + impact factor as a measure of a scientist's productivity, it would be nice if it was pushed…"

New Peer Review Paradigms for Astrobiology and Origin of Life

Abstract Scientific publishing is changing. More scientific papers are being published now than at any other time in history. The digital era is facilitating new publishing practices, such as preprint servers and Open Access journals. At the same time, there is a growing concern among scientists about integrity and equity of the peer review process as we know it. These new practices present the scientific community with an array of new opportunities, which may help revitalize peer review and…See More

Kelly C. Smith commented on Cole Mathis's blog post Solid, Liquid, Gas…. Life.
"You are absolutely, 100% right that "chemical" has no place in a general definition of life.  I think it's there because scientists (understandably, but misguidedly) let their operational worries enter into general concepts.…"

Brooke Kubby commented on Cole Mathis's blog post Solid, Liquid, Gas…. Life.
"Hey Cole,I really like this idea, but I feel like it has a few problems.  I think one of your questions at the end, "Or are we still stuck with all the problems of defining life?" speaks for me here.  What exactly are the…"

Cole Mathis commented on Brooke Kubby's blog post Idea: Humans Reproduce through Genetic and Non-Genetic Information
"I really like this idea, do you think there is selection on this non-genetic information? Dawkins certainly thought that memes constituted a Darwinian system, but should we expect that non-genetic information will evolve in the same way as genetic…"

Cole Mathis commented on Greg Vance's blog post The Gray Area of Life
"A lot of deep thinkers have pondered this question. The great mathematician von Neumann actually came to a very different conclusion. He thought there should be a clear line separating the living world from the non-living world. His arguments were…"

Cole,

I wanted to make sure you are getting my messages about the SoCIA 2016 workshop - you will need to apply for support soon and I haven't heard back from you, which makes me think maybe there is an issue with your email?  In any event, please contact me ASAP:  kcs@clemson.edu.

Cheers,

Kelly Smith
