The Role of Blogging in Open Notebook Science
I spoke at the North Carolina Science Blogging Conference (un-conference really) on January 19, 2008. Mainly I reviewed some of my posts on the UsefulChem blog from the past few months to show what types of issues are relevant to doing research openly. I then showed the connection from the blog to the wiki, mailing list and GoogleDocs where the laboratory data get reported and analyzed

Factfulness: ten reasons we're wrong about the world and why things are better than you think [Audio
Speaker(s): Anna Rosling Rönnlund, Ola Rosling | When asked simple questions about global trends – why the world's population is increasing; how many young women go to school; how many of us live in poverty – we systematically get the answers wrong.

3.3 Variation

Fossil rodents are first found in rocks that date from around 65 million years ago (from the Eocene) and are thought to have evolved from insectivore/omnivore-type mammals that lived 100 million years ago (in the Cretaceous period). To say that they evolved from simply means that there probably is a direct line of descent but that the descendants have changed from their forebears. One of the most significant ways that evolutionary change can be brought about is by a process known as na

For the most part, critics have associated Feldmann's appropriation and minimal representation of photography as a kind of construction to i
