Just in case there’s anyone who reads my blog who’s been on a transatlantic flight, or trapped in a mine.. or by some other excuse hasn’t seen twitter or the net all day, I wanted to bring a new Blog Consortia to your attention.
Naturally, all new blog groups have to come up with ever-increasingly cooler names. This one is no exception: Occams’ typewriter is clearly the best name I’ve heard yet. (Indeed, I’m jealous that I haven’t figured out how to get Occam’s name into my own blog title yet.)
Furthermore, several of my favorite bloggers are now there: Richard Grant (aka “Confessions of a (former) Lab Rat”), Cath Ennis (is it Ok to use your last name here?) (aka “VWXYNot?” and Erika Cule of “Blogging the PhD”. In fact, I highly suggest checking out the other bloggers as well.
Unfortunately for the typewriter crew, I think that the move to their new home was a bit premature, and likely caused by yet another Nature Blogs bug – while I can still get over to my blog over there, it seems many others were accidentally locked out. Despite the premature move, I think they’re off to a great start. I’m looking forward to many excellent posts and discussions.
Good luck guys, be careful wielding your razors, typewriters and other implements of destruction.
