I just discovered that Melinda Wenner at She Blinded Me With Science has tagged us with an Intellectual Blogger Award, an award intended for bloggers who are inclined to think on their own. As they say in these situations, I’m touched and honored.
As part of the award process, I now have to nominate five more “intellectual bloggers.” Given that we’re already five layers away from the original tagset of the award, and there are hypothetically 15,624 other blogs proudly bearing its logo, a lot of the blogs I thought deserved the award have already been tagged. I’ll try to keep the repetition to a minimum. I am, however, unapologetically heavy on the biology.
1. Tetrapod Zoology: Darren Naish writes about tetrapod zoology and only tetrapod zoology. He knows a lot.
2. El Gentraso: John Whitfield is a science writer who focuses on ecology and evolution.
3. Fish Feet: Sarda Sahney writes about natural history, paleontology, and of course, evolution.
4. The Long View: John Reilly's takes on history and alternate histories.
5. Adventures in Ethics and Science: Janet Stemwedel writes about science, philosophy, education, and whatever her kids are thinking. Her kids think a lot too.
