First, the interviews will continue….when I get some answers from one of the six people I sent questions to…. I will also be sending questionnaires to more people soon.
Second, there are some responses now to the 1-2-3, the Goosed/Book meme. First, Chad Orzel provides several interesting quotes. And now Tom Levenson responded with not one but two elaborate, illustrated posts: I’ve Been Tagged! Reading and writing and all that jazz. and I’ve Been Tagged! — Darwin follow up. Update: Eric Roston and Jennifer Ouellette did it, too. And Vanessa as well.
I was also tagged by another meme, about a historical figure, and once I picked the person I realized I first had to order and read a book! So, this will take a fe wmore days.
Third, I will reciprocate to Arunn and write a BPR3-style post soon. I have a stack of printed-out papers as well as half a desktop covered with icons of PDF files of papers accumulated over the last six months or so that I want to comment on. I’ll try to find some time very soon to do this. Perhaps more than one.
Finally, the conversation about What is a Science Blog? continues, so check out the posts by Greg Laden, Mike the Mad Biologist, PhysioProf (and again), John Hawks, Mike Haubrich, Razib, ~C4Chaos and Julia . Update: Janet Stemwedel and John Wilkins add their thoughts. As do Abel and Brian…And Jason and Selva and Greg again. And Lim Leng Hiong, Michael White and Ignored Ethos…And Greg and Chris…And Chad and Arunn….
