Wow, can you believe that Scientiae has been going for almost a year??! It was back on Feb 13 that I proposed a carnival on women in STEM, and there was tremendous and immediate enthusiasm. The first carnival was posted on March 1, and it hasn't stopped since (although it has slowed a little - now compiled once a month rather than twice).
So what should we do to mark this occasion? Jokerine has already hosted a reflective party, and very nice it was too.
Instead, let me reflect on the fact that March is the beginning of spring (yes, really!), a season for new beginnings. Let me solicit in particular posts that focus on "renewal." In particular, I'm thinking about discussions about what you find compelling about the science/work that you do, or what will get you through this next year, and what you hope for yourself (or for your profession, or for your discipline, or...) this time next year.
As always, general posts or posts that otherwise don't follow the theme are also welcome.
Send in your posts via the normal methods by Feb 29 5 pm EST (that's a freebie day!). And, if you'd like to be a host for Scientiae in Year 2, let me know also.
Hooray, hooray, Scientiae! Now entering its Terrible Twos!
2/23/08: Edited to add: I have just been alerted to the fact that I forgot to say WHERE the March Scientiae was being hosted. Oops. It will be at my blog, Rants of a Feminist Engineer. Thanks for the heads-up!
