Serendipity

The best science blogs can be found at the 2006 weblog awards and the best medical blogs at medgadget. Great blogs – much more than published papers.

But what is serendipity? Probably an artifical word used by Hugh Walpole 1754 in a letter he wrote to his friend Horace Mann

the effect by which one accidentally discovers something fortunate, especially while looking for something else entirely

a perfect description of biomedical science.
