I am delighted to welcome two of our favorite science bloggers on the planet to their new home with us at Discover Blogs! Ed Yong of Not Exactly Rocket Science and Razib Khan of Gene Expression begin settling in today and I cannot imagine two better additions to the family!
In case you’re not already familiar with these phenomenal blogs, Ed’s an award-winning science writer who breaks down research papers into easy to understand posts like no one else. He only uses the primary literature and Not Exactly Rocket Science was just named Research Blog of the Year, Best Lay-Level Blog, and home of the Best Post of the Year in the Research Blogging Awards. In other words, Ed’s writing is a must-read for anyone interested in science online.
Razib’s also a superstar blogger and covers genetics better than anyone! He not only reports on the latest research, but he synthesizes and analyzes the data from primary sources in novel ways–ways that often impress those scientists originally engaged in the studies. Razib offers new insights on topics from human migration to standards of beauty and I always learn something new when I visit his site. He also makes me laugh.
On top of being science blogging rockstars, these two are really great guys that we’ve known for years and are glad to consider friends. It’s about time we’re back on the same network!
