Update April 7: GrrlScientist has decided to change the name to “Scientia Pro Publica,” science for the people. Thanks to folks who shared ideas with her!!
GrrlScientist has decided to revive the Tangled Bank carnival under a new name: Scientia. While a very apt name indeed, commenters (not me) have pointed out the similarity with Scientiae, the blog carnival of stories of/by women in STEM. GrrlScientist has said she’d consider changing the name if a better idea came up, but other offerings are rather slim. Any of you out there have any good ideas? Please share here — or, better, offer them in the comments of Grrl’s post.
I really do think it is important for Scientiae to not get swamped by the massive size of the former Tangled Bank carnival reinvented under a very similar name. Please help out if you are clever with words. Or ask others for their ideas. Thanks.
PS: Candid Engineer will be announcing the April carnival any day now. Can’t wait. 🙂
