I’ll be away for a few days, attending BioBarCamp and Scifoo. The first day of BioBarCamp was today; lots of great people are there and the discussions tomorrow should be fascinating. I’ll possibly liveblog from both meetings, depending on my mood and the time available.

In the meantime, there’s a new Tangled Bank up at denialism blog. The carnival is entirely in verse, and references our piece on the chameleon that lives mostly as an egg with this lovely apt quote from Yeats:

As man, as beast, as an ephemeral fly begets,
Godhead begets Godhead,
For things below are copies, the Great Smaragdine Tablet said.
Yet all must copy copies, all increase their kind….

There’s also a neat new list of Top 100 Cutting-Edge Science Blogs that was kind enough to include Ouroboros.
