Award-winning journalist Hillary Rosner writes about science and the environment for The New York Times, Wired, Popular Science, Scientific American, High Country News, and many other publications. Her reporting has taken her from the Nevada desert to the Nairobi slums, from Borneo’s jungles to Montana’s alpine meadows. Hillary was a 2011 Knight Science Journalism Fellow at MIT and a 2012 Alicia Patterson Fellow. Before snubbing health insurance and a 401K, Hillary was a senior editor at the Village Voice. She’s worked on several media startups, co-authored a New York Times bestseller, and picked up two master's degrees along the way. She lives in Boulder, Colorado.

    Just porting over what I commented on Facebook in response to Thomas Hayden’s link:

    “I’m unsure about the indemnity revision she suggests, which is “from any and all judgements finally sustained by a court, after appeal, for any actual breach of obligation made hereunder.” If you and not the publisher were being sued, then seemingly on a judgment against you, you could opt not to appeal, and the publisher would be liable for the costs. Maybe it’s assumed that the publisher could always make itself party to the suit somehow.”

    Sorry, I should have changed my mention of you Hillary from third to second person. I lazily pasted my comment without re-reading it.
