I posted 29 times in February (hmmm, only about one per day in this shortest of all months).
My most important post of February was Circadian clock without DNA–History and the power of metaphor, an attempt at producing an “Explainer” that provides historical, philosophical, sociological, theoretical, methodological, and even linguistic context for a couple of recent papers. You judge if I was successful.
The second most important post of the month was Web breaks echo-chambers, or, ‘Echo-chamber’ is just a derogatory term for ‘community’ – my remarks at #AAASmtg – lots of stuff packed in there, but do you agree or disagree with some or all of it?
I made sure that the Scientific American Guest Blog was busy all month as well, full of great posts on a diversity of topics – check them all out:
