Nam et ipsa scientia potestas est (And thus knowledge itself is power)
-- Sir Francis Bacon.
Scientia Pro Publica (Science for the People) blog carnival was just published! The "Scientia Pro Publica #20" edition of Scientia Pro Publica is hosted by John at Kind of Curious. This was John's first time ever to host a blog carnival of any kind, so be sure to go there, read and leave your encouraging comments!
To send your science, nature or medical writing to Scientia Pro Publica, either use this automated submission form or use the cute little widget on the right or you can email it directly to the carnival email address; ScientiaBlogCarnival@gmail.com. [Apparently, the blog carnival automatic submission form has been restored to functionality] Be sure to include the URL or "permalink", the essay title and, to make life easier for the host, please include a 2-3 sentence summary. Remember, this blog carnival focuses on communicating to the public, so your essays must be understandable to non-specialists. Further, this blog carnival is not a vehicle for transmitting pseudoscience or advertising -- there are plenty of venues available for that.
The next issue will be hosted on 15 February by me at Living the Scientific Life (Scientist, Interrupted). If you are interested in rescuing everyone out there from my minimalist blog carnival style by hosting this carnival yourself, please contact me as soon as possible or send email to the Scientia email account (link provided earlier in this blog entry). I need hosts for all editions that will publish in 2010. Scientia Pro Publica is published on the first and third Monday of each month, so feel free to choose a particular date, or I'll assign you the first available date.
