More on the James Dewey Watson Bobblehead

Last week I mentioned the peculiar James Dewey Watson bobble head, and then corrected my crediting of him for that DNA business. Lo and behold, I got a call this morning from Ms. von Roeschlaub, one of the proprietresses (what a wonderful word that is) of SciVon Enterprises, the company that sells the bobbly head in question.

We discussed the price point (I had proposed that US $32 after international shipping was a bit pricey), and how she was working on getting a Francis Crick (Watson’s shier partner) bobble head. She said she’d gotten some sales out of this site, so that’s good. A classic example of the new PR/blogging model, I guess.
