Just Science

This isn’t technically about science, but I wanted to remind everyone that the week of science challenge has begun (as of yesterday), and the Just Science webpage is aggregating the feeds of all the participating blogs. So if you’re interested in reading a bunch of science blogging, including some by science blogs you probably haven’t…

Week of Science Challenge

Sorry I haven’t been posting much lately, but I’m in the process of rolling out a couple new experiments, and the resulting headaches have left me with little time or energy. However, next week, there will be 7 science posts in 7 days, because the Just Science challenge begins on the 5th! If you haven’t…

Week of Science Challenge

Encephalon 14

Welcome, everyone, to the 14th installment of the brain blogging carnival Encephalon.

Several other ScienceBlogs were nominated as well, including Pharyngula (i.e., the winner), Deltoid, and Good Math, Bad Math, along with Respectful…

Using Blogs In Education

I stumbled upon a paper on using blogs in education, with a focus on small colleges, and I thought it might be of interest to some of you. Here’s the blog post with a link to the paper.

Suggestions

Hello everyone. Since the traffic’s been up lately, meaning there are probably a lot of new people around, I thought I’d ask for any suggestions or requests you might have. Also, if you’re wondering about the framing project, it’s still in the works. I’ve talked to some others about it, and received a lot of…

Vote for Blogging Scholarship

OK, so apparently there’s a blogging scholarship, and it just so happens that someone who comments here at Mixing Memory, Jennifer Wong of Cyberspace Rendezvous, is a finalist, as is fellow Science Blogger Shelley Batts. You should go vote for one of those two here. I’m going to endorse Jennifer, not only because she comments…
