…in the punchbowl


I do not have time for this

Do you like science and/or history? Well then, the Royal Society has a deal for you.

Until the end of November 2006 you can freely access the archives of Royal Society publications: over 65,000 papers dating back to 1665. Examples include Newton’s invention of the reflecting telescope, papers covering Faraday’s electrical experiments, and Stephen Hawking’s first research paper.

And after November, if you’d like to continue to peruse, you can do so for the low, low price of GPB £5339/USD $9866 in the USA and Canada.

(Anyone want to give me 5,400 quid?)



  1. Very Cool!! Thanks for the link. Oh and sorry, I don’t have that much quid to spare.

  6. You will be glad to hear that you now have an additional month’s worth of free access – until the end of the year. So just a little more time yet.

    Kind regards and season’s greetings,
