Some interesting articles I’ve read lately include:
- Self-analysis of negative moods in American versus Russian culture: differing psychological consequences.
- Ed Yong’s explanation of why deadly diseases are.
- Australian fossils break the record for the oldest animal life. [Update: another take here] [Update #2: the find is disputed]
I mentioned bookmashes on an open thread by Ed Yong. Ed tweeted about it, which lead to a modest flood of Bookmash images on Twitter (and a one-day spike in my visitor stats). Not so much on blogs, though, except for this entry by Jo Brodie.
