Going to be quiet here for a while
Just a quick note.
Unfortunately, my lack of posting will continue for a little longer. In addition to trying to finish up a manuscript in my “free time” I will be traveling for the next couple of weeks for work (nowhere exotic, unfortunately).
If you want, you can follow me on Twitter — twitter.com/clasticdetritus — although I can’t guarantee it will be interesting in any way. These days it consists of me tweeting about working on the manuscript mentioned above and lamenting the actions of people like Joe Lieberman.
In the meantime, here are a few internet tid-bits for your enjoyment:
- Magma Cum Laude: Deadline for Accretionary Wedge (geoscience blog carnival) posts extended
- Research at a Snail’s Pace: Down the Rabbit Hole — the first in a series of posts about a GSA-related field trip led by a young-Earth creationist — I haven’t read yet, but looks like a very interesting account (also see Magma Cum Laude’s post on the same topic)
- Reporting on a Revolution: This Time It’s the Calcium That Did It — post about the Cambrian explosion/radiation
- BLDGBLOG: Fossil Reactors — haven’t read it, but I almost always enjoy the posts from that blog
- It’s alive! — Where on (Google)Earth #177 up at The Couloir Times
- Wired: The Epidemic of Fear — the BEST article I’ve read all year on the anti-vaccination movement and why it’s complete junk, a must-read
- Cosmic Variance: If Dr. Seuss Designed Produce — dragon fruit
- Interactive chart showing the frequency range of musical instruments
- Photographic documentation of a Roomba (robot vacuum cleaner) doing it’s thing — cool!
