Don't these people know I have work to do? The delectable distractions continue to pile up: 1. After suffering blog burnout, writer David Dobbs has experienced a blog rebirth. Check out his revival, Neuron Culture, for observations on the twenty-first century mind. 2. John Whitfield, another writer worth reading, is blogging his reading of The Origin of Species over the next few days at Blogging the Origin. 3. Tom Levenson, author and MIT professor, is going to oversee a longer project on Darwin starting on February 12, the D-man's birthday. Tom's gallery of co-bloggers for the project include Janet Browne, biographer of Darwin, and biologist Sean Carroll. I'll be helping out too. Here are more details.
