worth reading

We’re getting close to Feb 12, 2009, which is the 200th anniversary of Charles Darwin’s birth and will be celebrated by many/some as Darwin Day. One science writer has taken a cue from Slate.com’s recent, and excellent, blogging the Bible series to do a similar series by reading On the Origin of Species and writing about it chapter by chapter (here’s the set-up and here’s chapter 1, about variation through domestication). Fascinating stuff, and I’m excited to keep following this series on this most amazing man and theory.
