Terra Sigillata

I am officially embarrassed.

It was recently brought to my attention that my previous post misattributed the new Praxis blog to Bora Zivkovic.

Bora did indeed host the first edition of Praxis, the new blog carnival of academic life.


The Praxis experimental carnival of “the experience of living the scientific” was established, founded, and otherwise continues to be led by Martin, author of The Lay Scientist blog.

Well I’m Martin, I live in Cambridge, England, and this is me on the Amazon in 2007. I did a frankly weird Ph.D. looking at the relationship between models from ecology, immunology and socioeconomics, and currently I’m a soon-to-be-unemployed post-doc working on ecological and biological modeling.

Bora did indeed suggest the idea in his comment to his own post on blog carnivals.

But it was Martin who on that very same day conceived and compiled the listing, call for a name, called for hosts and posts, and all else associated with establishing a new blog carnival: guidelines, schedule, etc.

And you’ve got to love a gent who leads off Sunday morning with a post entitled, “What Does Human Flesh Taste Like?” that refers to science itself and not that crackergate fiasco.

That is all. Carry on.

    Yes, Martin did it. We conferred about it so I helped in launching it, but Martin is the boss.
