Waking the Baby Mammoth

Waking the Baby Mammoth

As some of you have no doubt noticed, I've been a bit absent from this digital home of mine for the past couple of weeks. What can I say? I've been incredibly busy with actually doing science.

Hopefully I'll get back to regular blogging soon (including my review of the press screener for the upcoming National Geographic Channel program "Waking the Baby Mammoth" - Thanks Minjae, Digital PR Consultant for NatGeo! My shiny disc and press release arrived via UPS today!). In the meantime, there are a few blog carnivals that you should definitely read.

Scientia Pro Publica

Scientia Pro Publica

First and foremost, everyone should check out the inaugural edition of the new Scientia Pro Publica carnival, started by GrrlScientist of Living the Scientific Life to fill the void created by the extinction of the Tangled Bank. This sure-to-be-successful carnival is dedicated to all the good science blogging out there written for the layperson. So if you blog science to reach the masses, start submitting to this new carnival.

GrrlScientist also recently hosted the Circus of the Spineless #37 dedicated to the spineless creatures of the world - which included my post on insect dorsal ocelli.

If you haven't made your way over to The Oyster's Garter, go check out Miriam's awesome edition of the Carnival of Evolution #10 - which included my post on the evolution of icefish blood and antifreeze.

Also recently out at Deep-Sea News, Kevin Zelnio has published the Carnival of the Blue #23, filled with salty ocean goodness.
