Living the Scientific Life (Scientist, Interrupted)

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

Scientia Pro Publica (Science for the People); “Scientia Pro Publica 32: Biology Overload” has just been published by Philip at his blog, The Dichotomous Trekkie 2.0. This was Philip’s first ever blog carnival, and he did an excellent job! So go there, leave some warm fuzzies for Philip, then read the linked essays and be sure to leave your comments on at least one of those essays, either telling those authors what they did well, or making suggestions for improvements in their writing.

After you’ve read this most recent issue of Scientia Pro Publica, perhaps you also wish to submit your blog essays to the next issue of Scientia? On the other hand, maybe you have found an interesting science essay written by someone else? To share yours, or others’, writing, either use this automated submission form or use the cute little widget on the right (be aware that widget doesn’t upload when the mother site is nonfunctional, and ALWAYS check your email/spam filter for your submission receipt to be sure it was sent properly). Alternatively, you can also send the link directly to the Scientia Blog Carnival email address.

The next issue will be published 21 June by Andrew at his group blog, Southern Fried Science. As always, we are seeking hosts for upcoming issues, so if you are interested to host an issue of Scientia Pro Publica on your blog, please check the schedule, choose an available date and then contact me through email or by leaving a comment in the comment thread here or there. Those whose writing has been included in previous editions of this blog carnival are preferred hosts, but if you are really interested, I am happy to work with you: first-time hosts are not only welcomed, but are encouraged to volunteer.

So don’t hesitate to provide your assistance: there are thousands of you reading this announcement who read widely throughout the blogosphere, and each one of you will read a science, environment, nature or medical blog essay that is worth sharing with a wider audience.
