Hellbenders, innovators, a relaunch, and a graphic novel
This week's two Extinction Countdown posts for Scientific American were quite popular, and I was quite happy to be able to write about one of my favorite species for the first time in four years:
Hellbender Salamander Gets Endangered Species Designation, but No Habitat Protection -- and That May Be a Good Thing [my 2007 article about the hellbender can be found here.]
Poachers Wiping Out Rare Monkey in Tanzania
I love writing for Mother Nature Network, especially when they let me cover technology news. Here are two cool new articles:
Manta ray inspires Princeton researcher to create 'magic carpet'
Popular Mechanics names James Cameron most innovative leader of 2011
After a brief hiatus, Green Hands USA returned last week, with one new article and one revision to an older piece:
Try Blackle, the Search Engine that Saves Energy
How to Choose Eco-Friendly Halloween Candy
And finally this week, here's a new book review for Graphic Novel Reporter:
Approximate Continuum Comics
Last week's planned launch of the Encyclopedia of Science Fiction was delayed. We're expecting it this week. So look for a link next week. Or follow me on Twitter for links as they happen.
