Another post I came across but don’t have time to read. It will be interesting to see how the book editor’s task differs (or not) from the journal editor’s.
Having seen the story in Nature last night (not yet read), I came across Cory Doctrow’s mention of it in a gracious posting on his own blog. He’s coming to give a talk to us in a week or two, can’t wait!
The Clovis Incident (author, correctly spelt, is Pari Noskin Taichert) is still all over the place at just over the half-way point. Last night I discovered "2005:Blogged" which I had picked up for a pound at the Christmas book sale at work, read the first couple of entries, and forgotten about. I read most of the entries last night and was entranced. I had no idea there was this vibrant UK blogging community: most of the RSS feeds I get via Bloglines seem to be either US, or about web/tecchie matters, or both. Not that these aren’t interesting, but "2005:Blogged" was a revelation. The year was quite an eventful one in the UK, with a general election, terrorist bombs in London, an exciting Ashes test series and so on. How much more in tune I was with the blogged reports than the newspapers! However, one of these bloggers, Tim Worstall, must have filtered a great deal of rubbish to have created the book collection — so it may not be that great once I have looked at a few. But I’ll give it a try.
