Geoblogosphere week in review (August 2-8, 2010)

August 9, 2010

Here are several posts from the geoscience blogosphere last week highlighting interesting writing/blogging:

In the wake of the most recent Accretionary Wedge, which reflected on the role of geoscience blogs, there were a couple of follow-up posts of note:

  • Chris Rowan of Highly Allocthonous continued the discussion of geoscience blogging within the context of the announcement and unveiling of a new science blogging collective called Scientopia. The comment thread is especially valuable in that it seems to have sparked an idea to create a group blog about geoscience as it relates to policy and society. We’ll see who steps up and takes the reins on that one.
  • Ron Schott of Ron Schott’s Geology Home Companion organized the first ‘Current Issues in the Geoblogosphere’ online discussion via Skype this past weekend. Several bloggers participated and they covered a lot of different topics. Check out this fantastic bullet-list summary of the topics discussed and find a link to download and listen to the audio here.
