Donors Choose: final standing

While I’m taking care of some housekeeping, I’ll mention the final numbers for the Scienceblogs Donors Choose 2007 challenge. In 2006, we raised collectively just over $34,000 (which included $10K from Seed media). This year, we extended the drive a bit, upped our individual blog goals, and Janet has the final tally: just a hair…

Monday’s post highlighting a few of the DonorsChoose projects brought in a few more donations, so check out another round of teacher-initiated projects, and throw in a few dollars if you’re able (or more than a few–I still have almost $1700 to go to reach my goal, or even another $900 to reach the total…

Help out a fellow science blogger!

Science blogger Shelley Batts of Retrospectacle is once again in the running for a nice chunk of change via the 2007 blogging scholarship. She’s one of 20 finalists, and as things stand, it’s a close race (and to be honest, some of her closest challengers are just pretty lame). So she’d very much appreciate it…

DonorsChoose–week 2

I’ve been remiss at soliciting more funding for the Scienceblogs DonorsChoose challenge. All told, Sciencebloggers have raised over $12,000 total so far to fund teacher-initiated, citizen-funded projects–$175 of that from here at Aetiology thus far, so I have a bit of catching up to do. I know you’re all busy people, so I’ll save you…

Correlations is live

I mentioned a new blogging project I’m involved with last week–a group blog called Correlations in conjunction with PBS and WIRED magazine. Well, now it’s up and running, so take a minute to poke around and read more about my other co-bloggers. Just intro posts are up for now, but “real” content will be coming…

Introducing Correlations

I rarely watch TV, but I’m always up for a good nerd show. So when I was contacted from a representative of the PBS affiliate in L.A. about a new show they were doing in conjunction with WIRED Magazine, I was definitely interested. The show is called WIRED Science (you can watch the pilot or…

Carnivals and miscellany…

I’ve been terrible about submitting to and promoting fellow bloggers’ carnivals lately, so here are two to take note of: the latest Grand Rounds is here at Six Unto Me, while you can get your fix of ecology bloggin’ at the most recent Oekologie over at Fish Feet. Finally, if you’re looking for even more…

Are science blogs having an impact?

Do you have a few minutes? Care to lend you time by completing a short survey to help answer the titular question? [EDITED TO ADD: thanks! We reached 1000 survey responses in just about 10 hours' time, so the survey is now closed...we really appreciate your participation!] This survey attempts to access the opinions of…

Phew, I’m tired

I mentioned August would be a hellish travel month. Beginning August 2nd, I drove to Chicago for YearlyKos, back to Iowa and grabbed the kids and dogs, headed to Ohio to visit family (including an almost-9-months-pregnant sister and her 18-month old son), headed out to Maryland/DC/Delaware for an impromptu road trip, back to Ohio, back…

YearlyKos videos are up!

I’ve not mentioned this yet because I hadn’t had a chance to see it myself, but C-SPAN did broadcast this year’s YearlyKos Science Panel. You can see Chris’s talk on hurricanes and global warming here; Ed’s talk on fighting creationism by running for school board here, and Sean’s talk on dark energy and dark matter…
