My year in blogging

Last year a few of us did this – basic idea is to reproduce the first sentence of the first post every month over the past year. I’m going to ignore "Today in Science" posts. Let’s see what we got …

  1. What is this mystery beast captured on film in Kayan Mentarang National Park, East Kalimantan, Indonesia in 2003? [link]
  2. Today I ran a workshop for my freshmen on argumentative writing, so this seems appropriate: [link]
  3. As Razib notes, Arthur Schlesinger has died at the age of 89. [link]
  4. Well, we know where McCain’s priorities lie: [link]
  5. Four years ago on this day, Bush declared that "major combat operations in Iraq have ended." [link]
  6. As Shelley has pointed out, Stinky Journalism has done a take-down on the Hogzilla II photos (see here and here) and has concluded that the hog was not as large as claimed. [link]
  7. Jerry Coyne has posted a reply to Behe’s reply to his original review of Edge of Evolution. [link]
  8. Doing this and only suffering bruises of the liver and lung, stress fractures to vertebrae and a small fracture on the top of one hand. [link]
  9. Apologies to a number of people who had comments held up in moderation in this thread; I’ve only just returned from three days in San Diego and was not in a position to keep an eye on the comments. [link]
  10. The Ballmer Peak holds for all intellectual endeavors, not just programming. [link]
  11. Back from the History of Science Society meeting in DC (well, Crystal City, Virginia actually). [link]
  12. Mark Borrello is a good mate of mine and an historian of biology. [link]

Mysterious mammals, presidential lies, giant hogs, creationism … you know, the usual stuff.
