Compound Interest

One of the few blogs I follow is “compound interest” (http://www.compoundchem.com/). It combines beautiful info graphics with chemistry facts, and all of it under creative commons license.

Did I do something?

I cant remember. I have this Google account which I use for Email and Calenders and-rarely-also I look up something in Google Scholar. Obviously that part o Google was improved to contain author lists and citation metrics and I have to say, that I am impressed. Take a look: S. Rauschenbach Google Scholar Page.

Maybe I created this profile a while ago and forgot about it again. Anyhow, it is a bit scary, but also it work very well and looks good. And it seems useful too and is for free. (Is is really? This is about the question who is the customer of Google. Its not the users and my wife is getting ads for Brukers new AFMs… but this is a different story which belongs somewhere else.)
