Espresso data

A lesson for today; don’t judge a thesis by its cover.
Sometimes these things can be apparently rather diminutive, but contain an incredible amount of condensed information. Others can be huge, but have protracted amounts of waffle.

At the end of the day, it’s about the data. And I like my data the way I like my coffee. Short, sharp and concentrated.
I approve of this thesis.

(And no, this post isn’t some kind of bizarre scientific euphemism.)

    How true, how true! That reminds me of that classic ‘Origin of Elements’ paper by Alpher, Bethe & Gamow, which I had to read lately. One page and it was such a groundbreaking work :)
    (Though there are some works, which are both huge and still to the points, just with huge amounts of concentrated information…)
