Tomorrow I'll be starting to blog at National Geographic Magazine, along with Ed Yong, Virginia Hughes, and Brian Switek. All the archives of the Loom (from 2003 till today) will be there, along with a bunch of exciting new science I'll be writing about in the days to come. The new url for the Loom will be http://phenomena.nationalgeographic.com/blog/the-loom/ And the new RSS will be http://phenomena.nationalgeographic.com/blog/the-loom/feed/ Things are ticking along nicely, and we're aiming for a 9 am ET launch tomorrow (Tuesday, 12/18). If there's any delay, it won't be for long. Once more, thanks for your readership over the years. Now, on to the future.
