Living the Scientific Life (Scientist, Interrupted)

Nam et ipsa scientia potestas est (And thus knowledge itself is power)
— Sir Francis Bacon.

The Scientia Pro Publica (Science for the People) blog carnival celebrates the best science, nature and medical writing targeted to the public (instead of to other scientists) that has been published in the blogosphere within the past 60 days. To send your submissions to Scientia Pro Publica, either use this automated submission form or use the cute little widget on the right (sometimes that widget doesn’t upload when the mother site is sick). Be sure to include the URL or “permalink”, the essay title and, to make life easier for the host, please include a 2-3 sentence summary.

The host for the 1 June edition is Kris, author of Pro Science. If you are interested in hosting this carnival on your blog, please contact me as soon as possible or notify the current host (please note that I prefer hosts who have had their writing included in one or more editions of this carnival). Scientia Pro Publica is published on the first and third Monday of each month, so feel free to choose a particular date, or I’ll assign you the first available date.
