Pure Pedantry

I am pleased to announce that Pure Pedantry is being joined by another wonderful, erudite and articulate co-blogger: Kate Seip. Kate formerly ran a blog called Anterior Commissure that many of you have probably read. She is a PhD student at Rutgers, and she also co-organizes the Science Communication Consortium — a speaking and lecture series about science communication in society. (You can read more about her on our About Page.)

Kate specializes in maternal, sexual, and mating behavior — subjects that are always good for a burst of traffic. That being said, she regularly exceeds all expectations with the quality of her analysis.

I am happy to have her, and I look forward to reading her always-interesting posts.

Welcome, Kate.

UPDATE: Kate also has an entry in this year’s science blog anthology, Open Lab 2007. The book was favorably reviewed in the latest issue of Nature (subscription only).

    New inputs are always welcome, especially from under-represented female scientists. I got a lot of amusement out of “Young & Contr(e)ary” How on Earth am I going to work a “Seip” into that? It is the palindrome of “pies”, but that just doesn’t do it somehow….

    Sounds like you will have to get a bigger hit counter, with more numbers on it! LOL!
