Exciting Adventures of a Science Journalist

Today's New York Times profiles a biologist who has been majorly influential in taxonomy through something called cladistics. Also he is slightly obsessed with spiders. More importantly, some of you will be interested in the byline on this article.

Whoa, crazy-groovy. Gotta say I like the way she writes, too.

Belle Waring blogged on this article over at Crooked Timber as well.

Very cool! No kidding about caring more about the byline...

By the way, there was some cladistic stuff at the phylogenetics conference I attended. :)

So, is she...working for them? Or freelancing?

Whoa! Nice. Well, I guess that answers the question of what she's been up to lately. :)

She's working for the American Geophysical Union as a science writer, so I guess the NYT piece was freelance.

Most NYT science articles are freelance jobs.
