Mr. Thoughts from Kansas, Josh Rosenau, has joined the ScienceBlogs conglomerate operated by Seed Media Group. That gives us two blogs involved in thinking (Wilkins the philosopher has the other one), to go with our three evolution blogs (Evolution Blog, Evolving Thoughts, and evolgen). Josh is a graduate student, working on a PhD in Ecology and Evolution. By my count, we now how have
six seven bloggers working on PhD’s in the life sciences (Josh, Bora, Jake, Mike D, Shelley, Nick, and myself), along with two life sciences post docs (Alex and Evil Monkey), plus Wilkins who’s a biologist by association. On top of all of that, we’ve got nine other life science PhD’s with varying levels of faculty standing (Tara, Sandy, GrrlScientist, Mad Mike, PZ, Orac, John, Abel, and Dave). And let’s not neglect our other life science bloggers: Afarensis, Jonah, Razib, and Carl.
two-three of the forty-eight blogs in the ScienceBlogs empire are biology flavored blogs. Not too shabby. These folks are in four countries (United States, England, Australia, and Canada), making ScienceBlogs a real international association of biologist.
