The Nature article also features the work of Colin Purrington, who had just weeks earlier puts in his candidate for the worst conference poster ever.
I think I’ve seen worse, though I don’t have any photographic evidence. This at least tries to be a poster. I have seen manuscript pages tacked up on poster board. To me, that’s worse.
On the other end of the spectrum, this might be a candidate for the best conference poster ever. Or at least the people’s choice favourite.
That one should have made it into the Nature article.
Ooh, there’s a Tumblr for silly, impractical, and inane QR codes.
