After attending Science Online ’09, I realized how important carnivals are in forming and maintaining online communities. My beloved ocean blogging community is tight-knit partly from being crazed salt-water-soaked biology fiends and partly because Carnival of the Blue gives us a sense of connection.
So I’ve decided to make an effort to participate in more carnivals. This is the first time I’ve entered the Carnival of Evolution. (Of course, my participation was considerably helped along by the charm and oh-so-skillful recruitment of this carnival’s founder, Dr. No-Longer-Pseudonymous Daniel Brown. Who I’m DEVASTATED is not moving to San Diego, by the way.) I’m excited to announce that Carnival of Evolution #9 is now up at Moneduloides.
Next month, the Carnival of Evolution will be hosted here at the Oyster’s Garter in some amusing fashion, though probably not in verse. The submission form is here, or you can just email your entries to theoystersgarter at gmail dot com.
