Oh, look – I’m in the New York Times today, in this great article by Amy Harmon on the increasing adoption of preprints by biologists:

And many #ASAPbio supporters retweeted John Hawks, a paleoanthropologist from the University of Wisconsin, who found himself recently at an African university where a paper on African genomes was unavailable because it could not pay the fee for the journal where it was published, and no preprint was available. He expressed his frustration with a profanity.

Yep. Proud of that one. Although my profanity is pretty milquetoast, just a “WTF?!”
