Updates on the blog network and news from the science blogosphere.


Thank you, MSU

The MSU students are back from China, where they explored the culture, looked for fossils, and studied dinosaur eggs in the laboratory. They have been sending their dispatches to us over the past couple of months, which you could read on the Expeditions blog...

What is: Open Laboratory 2011

The Open Laboratory is the annual anthology of the best writing on science blogs. Yes, this is an actual, physical book, printed on paper.The aim of the book is twofold: first, to showcase the quality of science blogging to the audience that does not read blogs and perhaps has a negative opinion of blogs due to the anti-blog propaganda in the mainstream media, and second, to build and strengthen the science blogging community.The idea for the compilation came from a discussion between Anton Zuiker and a representative of the online book publisher
