ScienceBlogs, the science-related blogging platform owned in part by NYC-based Seed Media Group and German publisher Hubert Burda, has cut a strategic deal with National Geographic Digital Media, the digital arm of NatGeo. Under the deal, NatGeo will take a minority stake in the platform, and will also take over the ad sales for the network of specialized blogs, headed by Jim Hoos, VP of Digital Media Sales for NGDM. The two companies will create and exchange content, including video content.
To be honest DearReader, I don't know anything more than this. Unknown how this new arrangement will affect your enjoyment of the Scienceblogs in general or this blog in particular. I do have this memory of a certain picture published a long time ago in National Geographic which I'd love to use to illustrate how much it sucks to be the grad student, though... hmm.
