Hey, how’s your week been? Anything interesting happening?
A few years back when I was a publisher, I remember someone joking that the primary beneficiaries of Plan S were publishing consultants. Now as a consultant in the wake of the recent OSTP Memo, I see the double-edged sword in that remark — there’s so much thinking and hard work to be done to help societies, publishers, and journals best support their communities in response to these policies that I suspect very few of us will see much downtime for the next few years.
So today, let’s slow down for a few minutes and take a deep breath. Find your moment of zen below with some stunning super slow motion footage of hummingbirds. Things may feel like a blur, but that blur is made up of smaller, precise motions. Don’t lose sight of the details as you accelerate forward.
