In which it is noted that Scienceblogs.com has partnered with National Geographic

Dec 04 2009 Published by under Biology, Blogging


All joking aside, the mothership is proudly announcing a new partnership with that giant of science communication, National Geographic. You can read about it here, here, here.
Sample coverage notes:

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.

    Sadly, your image joke has gone totally over my head. I'm ashamed. But I'm also intrigued by this partnership. Wired Science has perhaps done something similar in that it's now getting content from Science News.

    Whoops. It was actually supposed to be a link reference to the #SbBigNews hashtag shenanigans on Twitter. I neglected to actually insert the link (until now).
    Bora has a summary posted.

  • Take the time to check out the wide selection of mafia Halloween costumes online today and see what you can find.

    One of the reasons that Disney outfits are so well liked
    is because there are so many of them to choose between.
    This is a hilarious Halloween couples costume, and
    for added shock, cover the meat costume in fake blood.
