Call for October Scientiae posts!

I’m late in tooting the horn for Mad Chemist Chick, the current host of Scientiae for the October posting. (OMG, how is it way into late September already? Yikes.) Her theme for this month: “The Road Not Taken.” She writes: Was there a point in your career or research where you were faced with two…

September Scientiae: Genius is….

On Sunday, Academic posted the newest edition of Scientiae, focusing on “inspiration and desparation.” Head over and read it!

New Scibling Anne Jefferson (welcome, Anne! We are neglect in our scibling hospitality, so sorry!) who blogs over at Highly Allochthonous has called out for a last hurrah for women geoscientists to fill out a survey about reading or writing blogs.

Updates; and a new Scientiae

I’m sitting in a hotel room in D.C., at the first day of the 2009 Joint Annual Meeting, and I am hoping to liveblog tomorrow’s sessions, depending on whether the wifi is any good downstairs. In addition, I would like to note that I am a total hick, because I was just having some Thai…
