Yes folks, its official, the Raffles Museum of Biodiversity Research (RMBR) has become a new academic unit, the Lee Kong Chian Natural History Museum (LCKNHM) as of today, 1st April 2014.
And no, it’s not an April Fool’s joke. It’s simply time.
In the earlier weeks, RMBR’s admin (Tan Kai-xin) had (
hunted me down) informed me about migration of financial records, change in the WBS number of existing grants, and the migration of fixed assets. All very administrative, and not very newsy. Nothing compared to dinosaur acquisition and the name change is old news.
But would the admin change be announced? Well this morning, the official museum account (Marcus Chua) twittered this:
They called me a tweep!
But how very up to date! And at least they let us know. Like I told a colleague, there is no secret underground news channel which updates me, just follow them on twitter at twitter.com/lkcnhm. As you can see, the userid was changed to “lkcnhm” this morning.
Alright, excitement over, back to work!
