The Oyster’s Garter is going to be syndicated by Slate spinoff Double X! While the Oyster’s Garter home will remain here, blog posts will be simultaneously published over at Double X.

Double X is a new Web magazine, founded by women but not just for women, that Slate will launch in spring 2009. The site will spin off from  Slate ‘s XX Factor blog, where we’ve started a conversation among women–about politics, sex, and culture–that both men and women listen in on…We’ll tackle subjects high and low with an approach that’s unabashedly intellectual but not dry or condescending.

Double X is scheduled to launch in early May. I’m planning some extra-special sciencey goodness for launch week, but if you have suggestions for a glorious meeting of ladyblog+marine science, let me know!

  24. […] and you know that whole thing about Double X syndicating the Oyster’s Garter? Well, somehow I got it totally wrong. Most weeks, I’ll be posting […]

  25. I know this if off topic but I’m looking into starting my own weblog and was wondering what all is required to get set up? I’m assuming having a blog like yours
    would cost a pretty penny? I’m not very internet smart so I’m not
    100% sure. Any recommendations or advice would be greatly appreciated.

  26. Youre so cool! I dont suppose Ive read anything like this before. So nice to uncover somebody with some original thoughts on this topic. realy thank you for starting this up. this web-site is something that is necessary on the web, somebody having a small originality. helpful job for bringing something new to the web!
