Cool New Blog Carnival

The Giant's Shoulders is a brand new blog carnival focusing on the history of science. Bloggers are asked to write posts about classic papers or profiling important people or concepts.
Contributors should not only describe the research involved but also put it in a broader historical/scientific context: why is the work in question important/groundbreaking/revolutionary/nifty? [...] Entries profiling an important person or concept in the history of science are also acceptable.
The inaugural edition has gone up at A Blog Around the Clock and it's a doozy - dozens of entries profiling work as far back as 1543 and covering diverse areas from medical case studies to classic physics to ... Dungeons and Dragons? Check it out.
