Say howdy, everyone. Hmmm…maybe we should also bring that fellow on the left into the stable, too. Share this:PrintEmailShare on TumblrTweet Tangled Bank #83 » « Bony non-naked vertebrates on parade
Reginald Selkirk says
“Neurophilosophy”, huh? Why don’t you be the first to write about “evodevophilosophy”?
I’d speculate because Evolutionary Development doesn’t have a history of being riddled with category errors and other ideas about non-physical substances being involved. Except, perhaps vitalism. But philosophers of biology have cleared that up.
Larry Moran says
So what are the advantages and disadvantages of moving under the SEED umbrella? Are there any times when you have to listen to your master when you don’t want to? Are there any positive benefits other than the monthly check?
PZ, what’s it like dealing with the scienceblog collective? I know that there are times when it’s frustrating. If you had to do it all over again, would you?
PZ Myers says
I’d do it all over again. The Seed people do not tell us anything at all — we have complete freedom to do whatever we will, and while some of the SciBlings may be a PITA, we can ignore them.
The benefit beside the paycheck is a very reliable server, good PR, and most of the other people on sb are good to be associated with.
John Logsdon says
I’ll add my “voice” to the suggestion that Larry’s Sandwalk be added to scienceblogs. He’s got everything needed to make it work (most importantly, frequent, interesting posts and a good, steady readership). Maybe someone at SEED is listening…
pz, you’re a fellow nikonian, i never knew.
justpaul, FCD says
Sandwalk would be a fine addition to Scienceblogs, but I’ll continue to read Larry Moran daily either way. He’s not as prolific as PZ, but then, who is? Must be those extra six tent.. I mean arms…
Alan Kellogg says
We are Seed Magazine, you will blog for us. Your scientific expertise and writing skill will be added to our stable of bloggers. You’ll get paid. Resistence is counter productive.
You want to bring them into the “stable”?
That makes you the…?
Phoenix Woman says
Wow, PZ, I thought for sure you’d be all over this Salon.com piece: http://www.salon.com/books/feature/2007/07/03/paul_davies/
Martin Christensen says
#6: Yeah, arachnophilia, PZ announced a fair while back that he bought a D50.
Say, PZ, is that the kit 18-55 mm mounted on the camera? It could be a trick of the light, but it looks bigger, sort of like the 18-70 mm, but the additional weight of that lens ought to tilt the light D50 downwards. Just curious.
Martin (happy D200 owner)
Philosophy is becoming oppressive by the sheer weight of over-specialization.
PS I hated Mitsov’s lawyer, he really blew it during final arguments. Why would a lawyer take a perfectly good cause for reasonable doubt, a veritable swiss cheese of a prosecution, and wax eloquent about ‘even if my client is guilty you should still aquit him’? WTF?
You will be assimilated.
Resistance is futile.
Raging Braytard says
All those pictured should be grateful to be a part of the group that also hosts the blog of the great, divine, and playfully chubby Ed.
I’d love to see Sandwalk move over to Science Blogs. Larry’s lively personality, science knowledge and interesting posts would be a real plus for Science Blogs.
Hmmm…that’s not a bad picture of you PZ. I think you should paste in that picture as an update to your profile picture. It’s more flattering, IMO.
Um…so, can I come out of the dungeon now??
Just curious – is that photo from London?
Never mind, I clicked on the first link and it explains that, yes, it is from London. (I was at that day at the musuem, too.)
I think that Larry Moran at Sandwalk would fit in at SEED: he has a definite point of view about evolution and natural selection and will argue trenchantly for it.
