Brian Switek, one of the junior members of the science-blogging-whippersnapper brigade, has written a detailed look back at the saga of Darwinius, the primate fossil that held Mayor Bloomberg captive at a press conference. It was just published in the journal Evolution: Education and Outreach and is free for the taking. Switek has kind things to say about the impact of the Loom's coverage of the subject, although I'm pretty sure this blog--and the many others that hopped on this crazy story--won't stop this sort of fiasco from happening again. All we can do is help set the record straight.
