2006. Holy shit. Did I really use to be on Slashdot? Back then, I was working just outside of London - as the name suggests, using primates as a model of HIV infection. The funny thing with research is that you're busy all the time, but with significant downtime in between. I should have been reading the literature, catching up on my reports or presentations, or figuring out some other experiment I could slip in between my main ones. But I wasn't. I had discovered slashdot.
