Monkey Business

This message came to me from Linda Wang, who is currently attending the ACS national meeting in San Francisco. We'll look for Linda's famous meeting slideshow when she returns. Until then, we'll have to go bananas over this single pic: Earlier this week, I spotted this ape handing out Post-it notes to chemists outside the convention center. Charles Wolfus, ape and founder of the San Francisco-based company Zinali, was promoting his software tool Slideboxx to speed the creation of slide presentations. Hey, whatever works.

  1. Yeah- totally took post-it notes from this ape. Didn’t figure he was the company founder, though.

  2. Also snagged post-it notes from the slideboxx gorilla. Program looks pretty cool. Anyone else check out the program?

  3. I used a bunch of the monkey’s Postit notes. They curled up and didn’t stick well. I got what I paid for!!

  4. We’re sorry they didn’t meet your expectations, or ours. How about we send you some bona fide post-it notes to make up for it?

    In the meantime, we’re considering discounted pricing for post docs and grad students so they can use slideboxx for job talks. Anyone have suggestions on a fair price? Let us know here or on our facebook page
