One day in to ScienceOnline Together 2014, my head is full of ideas and questions and hunches that weren’t there a day ago.

I’ll be posting about some of them after I’ve had some time to digest them. In the meantime, I’m looking at pictures of jellies I snapped on a recent trip to the Monterey Bay Aquarium.

In addition to being pretty interesting animals, I find them very relaxing to look at. Which is nice.
