As a lot of you have noticed, I have not created any new posts on this site since February, 2012.
The reason for this inactivity is fairly simple. My own interests have changed and I find myself spending most of my time on things that have nothing to do with my career in the Pharmaceutical / Biotech sector.
All of us experience transitions in life; some that are imposed on us and some that we choose to make ourselves. Luckily, I have been able to control my fate in most cases, including my decision to explore opportunities outside of our industry. Because I do not want to bore you with those details, suffice it to say that I need to cut back (drastically) with my contributions to this web site.
I have considered taking down the site entirely but have decided against this since a lot of people still find the content that is already here of continuing value. And who knows? I may decide at some point in the future to refocus my energies on this always fascinating and controversial industry.
Finally, I want to thank all of you (who have followed this site and/or have commented on what has been written here) for reading my opinions. I truly hope that they have made a difference.
