The Loom Ends. The Loom Lives!

Okay--after some technical difficulties I won't bore you by recounting, I have an announcement. For the third time in this blog's life, I'm packing it up and moving it to a new home.

I would like offer my deepest thanks to Scienceblogs for hosting the Loom for two years. I got to know a great community of bloggers whom I will continue to follow closely as they flood my RSS stream. Virginia Hughes, Katherine Sharpe, Tim Murtaugh, and the rest of the folks behind the scenes at Scienceblogs have been wonderful to work with, always ready to get me out of whatever programming mess I fall into while never trying to control the content of the blog.

I'm moving the Loom because I'm starting a new incarnation as a columnist for Discover. Each month I'll be writing a column about the science at the intersection of brain and mind. Along with my column, I'll be joining some other excellent bloggers on Discover's web site, including Phil Plait at Bad Astronomy.

The new incarnation of the Loom will still contain its four-year archive of everything you've read before. And I will continue to blog the same disheveled mix of natural history, parasitic lore, evolutionary biology, and whatever else I find intriguing at the moment.

So goodbye, and hello.
