I am back

Back home after two weeks. Jet-lag will probably hit me tomorrow. Lots of catch-up with PLoS work awaits me tomorrow as well, but blogging should continue afterwards – several more posts about the Belgrade part of the trip are yet to come.

As you may already be aware I am about to embark on a trip to Europe again. I will be traveling on Sunday and arriving at Lindau, Germany on Monday for the 59th Meeting of Nobel Laureates. The list of Nobel Laureates (23 of them) and the list of about 600 young researchers from 66…

The Best of May

I posted only 128 posts in May – the reason for this reduction in numbers I explained here. Traffic has suffered only a little bit so far, I’ll keep an eye. Looking back at the month, I noticed how many videos I have posted: about half are very informative and thought-provoking, the other half are…

Technical problems

As you may know, scienceblogs.com is run on MoveableType 4 specially modified by SixApart for the site. The latest tweak was, apparently, a mistake, so the system was reverted to an older version (I have no idea what I am talking about, am I?) which makes posting and commenting painfully slow and likely to cause…

Go through the April archives – lots of news and several excellent (or very…

The Best of March

The best post of the month, IMHO, is Defining the Journalism vs. Blogging Debate, with a Science Reporting angle which is now slowly accumulating comments as well as links from various places online. My second-best post was the in-depth review of Fiddler On The Roof with Topol. The Open…

The Best of February

In February I posted 166 times. This includes two BPR3-icon-worthy posts about science! The first was on Circadian Rhythm of Aggression in Crayfish with the longish addendum on citing blog posts in scientific literature. The second was An Awesome Whale Tale, and, related to this paper, I announced the new Palaeontology Collection in PLoS ONE…

Best of January

I know, I know, it’s middle of February, but I was busy and neglected my duties. So, to catch up with the monthly feature, here is the best of January at A Blog Around The Clock: Of course, the entire month was dominated by ScienceOnline’09, so the rest of posts were mostly quick links, cartoons…

Testing, testing, 1-2-3-

OK, the system is up and running. Let’s see how this new software works!
