Call for posts, and for hosts!


Well, the cat’s outta the bag! While I was recovering from my sadly ironic auto accident, Greg Laden scooped us on our announcement (dang you internets bloggers; how do you find these things out?! 🙂 ). We’re now calling for entries to the first “The Giant’s Shoulders” classic science blogging event!

The first event will be hosted by Coturnix at A Blog Around The Clock, and entries will be due on the 15th of July. For the first event, tradition dictates that you can submit any relevant posts you like, new or old, even including things that appeared in the “Classic paper challenge“! Send your links to Coturnix to get things going (I’ve got some really kewl stuff to blog about).

For some guidelines on what constitutes a “classic” paper, read the ‘about’ page on this blog, and check out the “Classic paper challenge“.

On a related note, we’ll also need volunteers to host future incarnations of the event! If you’re interested in hosting in the future, let us know right here, or send an email.

    I’d love to post or host. I have a folder full of 200+ primary sources from the history of physics just waiting to be written about.

    Why not both? I’ll add you to the hosting list, and you can submit to a carnival whenever you feel ready!

    Ah, it wasn’t, really! I’m just continually amazed at (and amused by) how people manage to find out about things on the intertubes, even when they haven’t yet been advertised!
