Happy Birthday Darwin! Oh, and submit to Scientia.

Today is Charles Darwin birthday.

(Damn, I really should photoshop a party hat)
So what better way to celebrate the 201st anniversary of his birth than…


…submitting a blog post (whether about Darwin or someone else) to science carnival Scientia Pro Publica! Unless something remarkable happens over the weekend it will appear next Monday at Living the Scientific Life.

If you’ve written something about science, nature and medicine in the last couple of weeks, or if you’re read something about those subjects that you liked and which you think is suitable for the public, submit it to the carnival! You can use this automatic form. Make sure you include the URL or “permalink”, the essay title and 2-3 sentence summary as a handy hint about what the post is about.
If you want to see what previous issues of Scientia Pro Publica looked like just follow the link.
The carnival is also looking for volunteers to host it, so if you fancy some fun reading lots of good science blogging, email GrrlScientist or leave a comment here (not that she ever reads this blog).
Right, back to evolving some new wings. Nnnnnngggg. POP

    Ugh – this reminder just shows me how little I’ve posted about actual science lately. I really need to get on that.

  2. Bob O'Hara says:

    I have the same problem. :-(

  3. Stephen Curry says:

    What an excellent idea, Bob… ;-)
    Done!

    I’ve submitted my pre-Christmas post on Darwin and the physiologists, which seemed appropriate, even if it is a bit old…

  5. Henry Gee says:

    I’m just about to submit something …. hope I’m not too late ….. puff pant.

  6. Stephen Curry says:

    Not to worry, Henry, I’ll be happy to take anything you have to offer for the next SPP Blog carnival on 1st March (details soon…)
