Delicious Internet Noms

I finally have a day job! For a few weeks, anyway - I'm temping as a GIS monkey. While this is not functionally much different from generic office temp jobs, data entry using ArcGIS pays much better than data entry with Excel.

Historically, day-jobbing has not had much effect on my blog output, but it might take a while to adjust to the new routine. In particular, I need to grow some muscles so that I will be less exhausted by my bike commute. And since I will no longer be able to lounge around osmosing the blogosphere all day, please do drop me a note - by email, or leave a comment on one of these noms posts if you want others to see it too - if you've written something I should read.

Below the fold: It's apparently t-shirt and carnival week.

Image courtesy of AVO/USGS AVO has posted a series of images taken around Redoubt and around the Cook Inlet since the new eruptions started the night of March 22nd. You can begin to see the extent of the ash fall, what the explosions have done to the Drift Glacier and the new deposits in the Drift…
A week ago, if you asked around, I'm sure most people would have thought Redoubt would have erupted by now considering all the seismicity and melting that was seen at the end of last week. However, volcanology is not an exact science, and here we are continuing to watch Redoubt tease us with signs…
Here it is, my attempt to recap a year's worth of volcanic events. By no means is this supposed to capture every event, but rather the highlight/lowlights and what most captivated me during 2009. I'll be announcing the winner of the 2009 Pliny for Volcanic Event of the Year tomorrow. Waimangu…

Congrats on the day job! Here's hoping that it either extends after a few weeks, or you find something more permanent before it runs out

Fossilomics is a boggling concept, unless I'm being too clever (and it wouldn't be the first time). Assuming it's about the study of the fossilome is where I keep boggling. Extrapolating from the genome and the proteome and the metallome and the metabolome to ... the ... FOSSILOME. That makes my brain-app freeze and I have to wake up and kill the process.
