A Blog Around The Clock

The Humongous Darwin Day Linkfest

[Moved to the top of the page. First posted at 1:43am]

Last year, I collected the links to notable posts about Darwin Day and posted them here. That was fun, so I decided to do it again.

I checked the Technorati and Google Blogsearch and took my picks that you can see below. I will update this post several times today and move the post to the top in the evening. If you want your post to appear here, please e-mail me at: Coturnix AT gmail DOT com.

Also, later today, I will update this post with a special announcement (pending the approval by the person in question) – naming the winner of my ten-day Rebuild The Beagle contest. The winner will get a copy of The Open Laboratory.


The Grand Winner is (drumroll, please…):

Susan Davies

So, the book will be travelling to the UK later today.

If you are new here, check the ten posts about the Beagle contest (Day 1, Day 3, Day 4
Day 5, Day 6, Day 7, Day 8, Day 9 and Day 10) and see what “The Open Laboratory” is all about here.

I decided to split the posts into two groups, the first focusing on yesterday’s Evolution Sunday and the second focusing on today’s Darwin Day.

Here we go (under the fold):

    You should get some prize for collecting every single Darwin Day post on the web. Nice job.

    Thank you. This is better than the pure Technorati search as it omits the posts on Uncommon Descent and similar stuff.
