ScienceOnline2012 is over. Many bloggers (including 28 SciAm bloggers and blogging staff) were there. When meeting face-to-face, bloggers want to talk to each other rather than write blog posts or read blogs (they are likely to write their impressions of the meeting later). So now is the time to slowly get back to the online world again, and to check out what our colleagues have written while we were absent.

Last week, we introduced the new Video of the Week, and earlier today we put up the new Image of the Week - check them both. And now to see what did the rest of the network write in our absence:
