Odyssey trying to corral fellow faculty.
All I need from each of them is a biosketch, list of current and pending funding, and a paragraph or two describing the research they would do with the instrument. Is that really so hard?
Apparently it is. To the point that I can now confidently state a new law...
Odyssey's law of equipment proposal writing:
The ability to obtain from a faculty member useful information required for an equipment proposal is inversely proportional to just how useful that piece of equipment would be to that person.
Anyone got a good bullwhip I can borrow?
