…and it was fun. Here are some highlights from the past week:
- Why do only some ants sting?
- Competing for space on a fake walnut
- The case of the Malagasy mystery ants
Here’s one bit of information that might be useful for anyone thinking about starting a blog. The ScienceBlogs network- which hosts Photo Synthesis– is driven by Moveable Type software. The Myrmecos Blog uses WordPress. Having spent time now in both platforms, I’ve decided that I much prefer WordPress- it’s more intuitive, more flexible, and it handles images more smoothly.
This isn’t to say that blogging for ScienceBlogs was in any way unpleasant. It wasn’t. Moveable Type worked fine for what I needed it to do. I just like WordPress better as a blogging application.
