Quarterly Summary: Jonathan Thon starts with a flourish

Download PDF

We were thrilled this quarter to welcome Dr. Jonathan Thon to the Black Hole in the capacity of regular contributor.    He’s enthusiastically launched himself into the online blogging world with several articles and I’ve tried to scatter in a few along the way.  If you fancy doing something similar, we’re always open to hearing from new potential bloggers that want to have a one time (or regular) say on the issue(s) that they are most concerned with.  Contact me at contact@scienceadvocacy.org if you are keen.

Also, The Black Hole will be making a few changes in the coming quarter including building a resource page that will catalogue some of our most popular links and stats for use by our readers – we hope this will help older posts stay fresh.

For now, here’s a recap of what was done this quarter:
