My Dead-blog of the 2015 IBS meetings.

These are my notes from IBS 2015, as a sort of not-so-live blog. I’m still figuring this scicomm thing out and I’ll probably have a livelier way of putting up notes next time, but I feel like the Twitters don’t give me a chance to document the conference the way I’d like. All smart stuff […]

In which we explain how camel ankle bones relate to the fate of global ecosystems.

I’m taking time away from comic book blogging to do some actual SCIENCE BLOGGING. Just last month I published a paper in Palaeontologia Electronica with my esteemed colleague Brianna McHorse (who blogs over at Fossilosophy).

Comic Reviews for October 23

OK, OK, I know this is a tad late… I’ve been busy: I was at the 2013 SVP meeting in Los Angeles. I’ll try to catch up on almost a month’s worth of comics, because this batch represents two weeks of backlog. I’ll drop in my review of the next two week’s worth sometime this […]

Geek Girl Con 2013 Day two, October 20. I missed the panel on “The Changing Role of the Character of Color” because I stayed up late playing board games with Jenny and Simon, who kindly hosted me on my trip to Seattle. I was really sorry to miss this panel and I hope to find […]
