    October News - Quiet month

    September was quiet for GLG because I was busy getting married and going on a honeymoon! It was so much fun and something I had been looking forward to for a long time. Now I'm settling back into normal life and will be extremely focused behind the scenes to move a few key projects forward. Stay tuned!

    Major data update on The Lab Coat Project!

    We're over 975 responses and I couldn't help but peek at the data. "Peek" might be an understatement. I spent an entire weekend pouring through it, reading every single rant and learning how to make queries in Google Docs to parse the data into useful plots. Now, for your viewing enjoyment, those plots are published at the bottom of the main Lab Coat Project page.

    See what's winning in the major design features and what the favorite colors are! We're seeing trends in the fit data but won't publish that until we get well over 1000 responses to ensure they are statistically significant in every size range.

    PLEASE if you know a single scientist or engineer who wears a lab coat and has not taken this survey, we need their voice added! It's only an 8-minute form. Forward this link to them and tell them how awesome this is going to be when everyone contributes. 


          Just for fun:

          Always read the fine print in your work contracts.
