Who You Calling Authoritative?

By Carl Zimmer | February 3, 2010 10:11 am

Thanks to the UK Times for including The Loom among their top science blogs. It’s great company to be in, including fellow Discover blogs Bad Astronomy and the Intersection. I am just going to assume that the Times has not yet discovered Cosmic Variance, because its omission is a gross oversight.

I also think their description of the Loom as “authoritative science writing” may be a bit of an oversight, too (as flattering as it maybe). I mean, really: Duck porn? Tattoo parlors? Cockroach zombies? Other adjectives come to mind…

  1. Well you wouldn’t want them saying “racy” or somesuch. They’re British. They’re being polite.

  2. But you do write authoritatively about cockroach zombies. If I ever wanted to read about re-animated insects, this is the place I’d come for information I could rely on.
