Welcome ThonyC as co-manager of The Giant’s Shoulders!

July 17, 2010

I’ve been thinking for a while that I would like to get some additional help and suggestions on how to keep this carnival going and come up with new ideas for it.  Well, I finally did something about it!

ThonyC of The Renaissance Mathematicus has graciously agreed to be a co-manager of the blog, and will be helping to plan future editions and occasionally posting here.  Please give him a nice welcome!


The Giant’s Shoulders #25, 2nd anniversary edition, is out!

July 16, 2010

The Giant’s Shoulders #25 is officially out at The Dispersal of Darwin, and it marks the two year anniversary since the first carnival!  In honor of it, Michael has put together a truly massive list of posts for the month, celebrating the history of science — many thanks to him for assembling it!  If you follow me on Twitter, I’ll try and post some links to highlights from the carnival throughout the day, even though everything is worth reading!

The next month’s edition will be hosted by Scicurious at Are You Scicurious? It will also be a special event, as we have dubbed it to be a special “fools, failures, and frauds” edition — it’s time to commemorate the history of those scientific discoveries that didn’t work out as intended!  Though all entries on the history of science will still be accepted, consider submitting a history of science post that describes (a) some really stupid or crazy scientific research (or researchers), (b) research that didn’t work out as intended or expected, (c) research that was completely fraudulent.  I’ll have more to say about this special edition in the next few days, as well as a few other bits of news.

Entries can be submitted through or directly to the host blog, as usual!

7 days until The Giant’s Shoulders #25!

July 8, 2010

In spite of all the craziness in the blogosphere right now (or perhaps because of it), this seemed like a good time to remind people that there are 7 days left until the deadline for The Giant’s Shoulders #25, to be held at The Dispersal of Darwin.  This edition will mark the 2nd anniversary of this carnival’s existence!  Entries can be submitted through or directly to the host blog, as usual!
