Daniel Janzen, Biologist

I have met very interesting people through Esther Dyson (on Wikipedia). The most recent such person is Dan Janzen as Esther encountered him at Science Foo Camp (on Wikipedia), hosted by O'Reilly and Google. Esther "captured" Dan in a most amazing photo.

I assume you wish to contact Dr. Janzen, not me. Use the second link of the post: "Faculty page at the University of Pennsylvania." It has contact information for Dr. Janzen.

Hi Marjorie,

Just checking this back, while sitting in ACG, with Bill Allen at my side. I actually did want to contact you, and learn more about your interest/history leading to your great post. I've referred a number of people to it since finding it. I think you have a very interesting page about my teachers and friends Dan and Winnie. Meanwhile, Bill Allen is here in the course of updating Green Phoenix, and we're discussing how ACG will definitely not die when Dan does :) If you're willing to be in touch via conventional email (or linked-in?), would you please email me at As you can see, it can take me a while to get back to this blog thing! And of course, you're always welcome to come visit here in ACG to see for yourself. Best wishes,
Thanks, Brad Zlotnick
