January has been a busy month.  In addition to writing here, I worked on some websites for my family and submitted entries to a couple of science writing competitions for the first time!  I’ve also optimistically nominated Inspiring Science for the annual “Bloggies” awards; if you think it deserves a chance, why not head on over and add your voice? I’ve really enjoyed working on this blog for the past year and I’m looking forward to writing being an even bigger part of my life in 2013!  Anyway, here’s another batch of tidbits I found during my wanderings.  As always, feel free to add more links in the comments.

Science and society
Sex, sexism and gender
Visual arts
Just for fun
  • I don’t like linking to adverts, but this one really is excellent.  Besides, it’s about the power of words so how could an aspiring writer resist?
  • Noah St. John’s story-telling performance at NPR’s Snap Judgement.  To be honest, I wish there hadn’t been any background music…but that’s just the way I am.
  • Inspired by an xkcd comic, the Up-Goer Five text editor: you’re only allowed to use the thousand most common words in English.  I’ve been meaning to write a post (or something) using this, but haven’t gotten to it yet.

That’s all from me!
