I need to summarize the memo and what's wrong with it -- but first I need to take my car in for maintenance...

@pzmyers Damn, I've met Jeff Gore, and I've read at least one of those papers.

Now I'm wondering if the author ordering was alphabetical.

@pzmyers ... OK, probably not, but "first author" means less when it's a two-author paper and the other is the person who runs the lab.
