    FYI – after I sent the link from your blog installment to friends, I received this reply – one among many, by the way. Great use of the resource, I’d say.

    “Helen, I sent your article on to my son and to his wife who is just starting a PhD in science education, and she (from Bombay, incidentally) cited the article in her first paper. Many thanks again! Connie”
