This is a collection of blogs published online this in 2012. The selections are short, well written and readable chosen from 720 submissions. I found it fascinating – it introduced me to subjects I never would have encountered otherwise and deepened my understanding of others. The range of topics is immediately clear. The first 4 titles are:
Somata [ a cosmic poem]
Make History, Not Vitamin C
Saving Ethiopia’s “Church Forests”
What It Feels Like for a Sperm
I don’t have time to follow blogs, not even the others of the 2 that I found most useful. But I will certainly look for future editions of this collections starting this time next year.
