The Giant’s Shoulders #12 is up!

June 16, 2009

The twelfth edition of The Giant’s Shoulders is up at Thoughts from gut bacteria!  Thanks to ecoli for assembling it, and on such short notice!

Ecoli is also offering a $20 gift certificate for the most popular entry, so don’t forget to vote to reward your favorite history of science blogger!

This edition also marks the first full year of The Giant’s Shoulders!  Next month I’ll be taking the carnival to my home pad over at Skulls in the Stars, for the edition to be held July 16th.


10 days until The Giant’s Shoulders #12!

June 5, 2009

Just a friendly reminder/request, as always:  there’s 10 days left until the 12th edition of The Giant’s Shoulders!

I seem to be unable to reach the originally scheduled host of the carnival for this month, so ecoli over at Thoughts from gut bacteria has graciously agreed to fill in on short notice.  Ecoli is sweetening the pot with a $15 Amazon gift card for the best submission, judging TBD!

Let’s get some good entries going!

An appeal for posts!

June 4, 2009

Hi folks,

Over the past couple of months, the number of submissions to The Giant’s Shoulders has been a little light.  Entries have been great, but it would be nice if we ended up with a few more of them, at least if we want to keep TGS as a monthly carnival.

Up until now, I’ve had the (unofficial and unannounced) policy that authors should submit their own posts to the carnival, but there seems to be no reason why you could nominate other posts that are out there on the history of science.  I know that there’s a lot out there, but relatively few seem to get into the carnival these days!   Keep in mind that there’s no requirement that posts be massive, erudite essays (though we like those, as well); any post which highlights interesting and significant events/people/discoveries in the history of science is welcome.
