I had a pleasant surprise this morning when Ria Tan of WildSingapore emailed to say, “
- Adherence to the principle and philosophy of blogging (an independent, opinionated, non-corporate individual voice).
- Overall relevance and focus on biodiversity.
- Design, scope and general appeal.
This blog is in constant danger of descending in to a seminar and job notice board – useful things for sure, but it’s nice to know that The Pimm Group at least feel it has contributed to raising awareness about biodiversity. Pretty encouraging since they list sites like mongabay! I hope this encourages posts from the various labs.
The various speakers whom we have been fortunate to host have helped as their talk abstracts are informative. Thus the grad students facilitating the BEJC have contributed as well.
The social and personal news is always appreciated and is not only helpful to contributing a softer feel but also a way for our overseas students to keep in touch.
Ria Tan blogged this – see the IYB2010 Singapore blog.
