Living the Scientific Life (Scientist, Interrupted)

Since I have recently developed quite a history of visiting cold and snowy places, often during the winter, I wish to preserve that tradition. I am competing for the opportunity to go to Antarctica in February 2010 — a dream adventure that I’ve always wanted to pursue (and almost did pursue when I was an undergraduate researching Fin Whales and Crabeater Seals at the University of Washington). To enter, we must write an essay explaining why we think we are the best choice, and solicit votes from the public. Whomever receives the most votes wins the job. But I am not the only one who thinks I will do a good job sharing this adventure with you. Here’s a list of some of the people who are supporting my bid to become the official blogger on this Antarctic expedition;

The Beagle Project.

PZ Myers, Pharyngula.

Bob O’Hara, deep thoughts and silliness.

John Lynch, a simple prop.

John Wilkins, Evolving Thoughts.


Razib, Gene Expression.


Digital Cuttlefish.

Sheril Kirshenbaum, The Intersection.


TravelGrrl,realist at Large.


The Ridger, The Greenbelt.
