FEBRUARY 12, 2017 EDIT:
I’ve said it before and I’m sure I’ll say it again. I’m new to blogging. I don’t know all the rules yet. I’m finding them out as I go and that means I’ll make mistakes. Acknowledging the mistakes and fixing them is part of my journey.
This post, SICB part 4, was originally a summary of several of my favorite SICB talks. There was one about owls, one about flying snakes, and jumping frogs, and jumping squirrels. I enjoyed these talks very much and took detailed notes so that I could share what they were asking and their results with you.
I just found out that publishing information from their talks without the speaker’s/researchers’ explicit permission is a major faux pas. I did not ask the speakers if they were okay with me writing about their work. I honestly didn’t know that was an issue. But now I do.
So, this post, gutted as it is, now serves as a reminder that a) there are indeed rules to science blogging and b) that I’m learning them, slowly but surely.
