Adam Hinterthuer is a freelance science and environmental writer living in Madison, Wisconsin. He's written about bisphenol-A in plastics for Scientific American, Asian Carp and electric fences for BioScience and one man's crusade to clean the mighty Mississippi for the now defunct Plenty magazine. Once upon a time, he was a podcaster for Scientific American's "60 Second Science." In his free time, well, actually, with two young daughters and three part-time jobs, Adam doesn't have free time. If he did, he'd spend it camping, hiking or biking (sans kids) with his wife, Carrie.

    I like ‘Take the long view’. Sometimes you’ve just got to accept that there’s a bigger picture waiting for you – that’s my view and I’m sticking to it!

    Nice work, Adam! I like the practical suggestions, especially keeping cool story ideas around you through other work … I need to remind myself to stay surrounded by cool research ideas …
