Blogging Evolution Science

Welcome, Jason!

Let me just take this opportunity to welcome one of my favorite evolution bloggers, Jason Rosenhouse, over to the ScienceBlogs fold. I’ve been following his blog for many months now.

Go say hi to him at his new location at EvolutionBlog, and don’t forget to update your bookmarks (which reminds me, I’ll have to update my own blogroll; there are some out of date entries there and I’ve been meaning to clean it up anyway). I sincerely hope Jason’s transition goes more smoothly than mine did.

In case you weren’t aware, there will soon be several more bloggers joing Jason and us here at ScienceBlogs. I only know who a couple of them are so far, but I’m told there will be quite a few new additions soon. Stay tuned.

By Orac

Orac is the nom de blog of a humble surgeon/scientist who has an ego just big enough to delude himself that someone, somewhere might actually give a rodent's posterior about his copious verbal meanderings, but just barely small enough to admit to himself that few probably will. That surgeon is otherwise known as David Gorski.

That this particular surgeon has chosen his nom de blog based on a rather cranky and arrogant computer shaped like a clear box of blinking lights that he originally encountered when he became a fan of a 35 year old British SF television show whose special effects were renowned for their BBC/Doctor Who-style low budget look, but whose stories nonetheless resulted in some of the best, most innovative science fiction ever televised, should tell you nearly all that you need to know about Orac. (That, and the length of the preceding sentence.)

DISCLAIMER:: The various written meanderings here are the opinions of Orac and Orac alone, written on his own time. They should never be construed as representing the opinions of any other person or entity, especially Orac's cancer center, department of surgery, medical school, or university. Also note that Orac is nonpartisan; he is more than willing to criticize the statements of anyone, regardless of of political leanings, if that anyone advocates pseudoscience or quackery. Finally, medical commentary is not to be construed in any way as medical advice.
