Biologist Gregory Petsko has written a monthly column for the journal Genome Biology since the journal launched in 2000. To mark the 10th anniversary of the column and the journal, Genome Biology created an eBook (iPad/iPhone: free, Kindle: 99 c) containing all columns up to August 2010.
I downloaded the iBooks version for iPad/iPhone. The columns read nicely on the iPad display (almost all of them are text-only, a few contain images and/or links), and the texts are of course thoughtful and entertaining. Here are a few teasers:
Suggestion for Genome Biology: if you want more people to read the column, create an RSS feed for it. Or even better, turn it into a blog.
Suggestion for EMBO Reports: pick up the idea and create an eBook with the editorials by Frank Gannon, who wrote a similarly thoughtful column for them until April 2009.
