Blogroll Revamp

Email This Entry

Posted by Derek

Well, I'm going to try to post tomorrow morning about the Sanofi-Aventis investors meeting, when we should (in fact, had darn well better) hear some more about the rimonabant situation. And the debate over the New England Journal of Medicine and Merck is going on briskly in the comments to yesterday's post, so please take a look over there if you haven't yet.

So tonight I'll take a few minutes to rework the blogroll. Welcome newcomers Terra Sigillata, Science, Shrimp and Grits, the Mass Spectrometry Blog, Tobias Sing's Bioinformatics Blog, Snowdeal, Cosmic Variance, On Pharma, and Oncology Updates.

And note also the new locations of Uncertain Principles, Adventures in Ethics and Science, Aetiology, Gene Expression, Pharyngula, and Respectful Insolence at Scienceblogs.

No doubt there are other sites I should be linking to - suggestions are welcome!

Do you know what happened to Greg Hlatky? His blog (A Dog's Life) disappeared about a month or so ago, rather abruptly and with no warning. I hope he just decided to throw in the towel, and wasn't forced to give up blogging because of personal/health/financial/whatever problems.

Sorry, Razib! I'll fix that, and the broken links, this evening, and update this post in case someone else comes across it.
