New home for Discovering Biology in a Digital World

Sometime in the next day or two, Scienceblogs will shut down.  We've enjoyed the opportunity to blog here for the past 10+ years. Not to worry, @digitalbio and @finchtalk will continue blogging, but more so from their own site at Digital World Biology.  The Scienceblogs posts have been reposted at Digital World Biology's scienceblog archive, and new posts will be at Discovering Biology in a Digital World, now at Digital World Biology.

Enjoy

@digitalbio, @finchtalk
