The Giant’s Shoulders #42 is out!

December 17, 2011

The 42nd edition of The Giant’s Shoulders, the history of science blog carnival, is up at PACHSmörgåsbord!  In it, you can see maps of the Moon that date back to the 17th century, how to write the square root of 2 in ancient Babylon, and a discussion of the “dancing fever”!  Thanks to Darin for once again putting together an excellent carnival!

The deadline for the next edition is January 15th, but we don’t have a host yet!  We desperately need hosts for all upcoming editions in 2012!  If you can help, please contact  Thony C at Renaissance Mathematicus or Dr SkySkull at Skulls in the Stars, or leave a comment here.


Christmas is coming and Giants’ Shoulders #42 too

December 1, 2011

The history of science blog carnival Giants’ Shoulders #42 will be hosted by Darin Hayton at the PACHSmögåsbord blog on 16th December. This means you have just fourteen days to write and submit those history of science post either direct to the host or to the blog carnival website.

The Giants’ Shoulders need hosts for 2012. Book the month of your choice now while you have chance and help to make 2012 a great year for history of science on the Internet. If you are interested contact either Dr SkySkull at Skull in the Stars or Thony C at The Renaissance Mathematicus.
