After very careful consideration I have decided to make a change in philosophy regarding our forums here at MYLT.
Original Forum Intention = I believe in an open science. Where we can build upon each others discoveries. I envisioned part of the forums here becoming a place where like minded aging researchers could bounce ideas off each other.
Reality = A lot of time and money is spent in each of our careers. I have learned this first hand in my lab. Sometimes peoples livelihoods are determined upon their publications and the possibility of being scooped (a term for someone else publishing something your working on before you do) can have pretty damaging effects. Also, projects require capital, and for a scientist one way to acquire capital is to patent some of your techniques. Both of these would be hindered by a forum as I envisioned it. I wish it wasn’t like this, but I must work with the reality of the situation.
New forum intentions = So after careful consideration I will be converting the forum into a more open to the public forum. Where just about anything related to this site is fair game. I do imagine discussions on new research and diets, but this is to be seen.
