Ain't No Party Like a Scientific Blogger Party?!


Have you wanted to meet me in person? Probably not! I really can’t blame you. What about the doofuses who run Zooillogix? Yeah, neither do I.

Ahh, but do you want to drink Manhatten’s, G&T’s, and Martini’s at trendy bar in San Francisco with like-minded scientific groupies. Well then…

It’s long overdue. Time for a Zooillogix writers, friends, and lowly readers party. On Friday [September] 26th, we will be having our get together at Tonic, in San Francisco, starting at 9:00PM. We think it will be fun to see what weirdos (that’s you!) come out of the woodwork. At worst, Ben and I will get quite drunk alone. Actually, that’s not true. At worst one of our readers will be insane and will knife us. But either way, we are forging ahead with this plan. Craig from Deep Sea News will also be there and there is a good chance that some of your other favorite science-type bloggers will also be joining. We will confirm the additional headliners as they send us their deposits.

If you plan on going leave a comment over at Zooillogix

Craig McClain is the Assistant Director of Science for the National Evolutionary Synthesis Center, a National Science Foundation supported initiative. He has conducted deep-sea research for 20 years and published over 50 papers in the area. He has participated in and led dozens of oceanographic expeditions taken him to the Antarctic and the most remote regions of the Pacific and Atlantic. Craig’s research focuses on how energy drives the biology of marine invertebrates from individuals to ecosystems, specifically, seeking to uncover how organisms are adapted to different levels of carbon availability, i.e. food, and how this determines the kinds and number of species in different parts of the oceans. Craig’s research has been featured on National Public Radio, Discovery Channel, Fox News, National Geographic and ABC News. In addition to his scientific research, Craig also advocates the need for scientists to connect with the public and is the founder and chief editor of the acclaimed Deep-Sea News (, a popular ocean-themed blog that has won numerous awards. His writing has been featured in Cosmos, Science Illustrated, American Scientist, Wired, Mental Floss, and the Open Lab: The Best Science Writing on the Web. His forthcoming book, Science of the South (, connects cultural icons of South such as pecan pie with the science behind them.

  1. I’m with Jives — too far for my travel budget! Besides, G&Ts and Manhattans are too high-brow for us fisheries types. Can of PBR, anyone?
