Having been a reader of Discovery Space for a while now, I was excited to hear from the Discovery’s ace producer Dave Mosher, that the site had undergone a fairly radical face-lift. The excited the web designer inside me couldn’t wait to see what had been done, but it was also a relief that the superb space science reporting hadn’t changed, it had been re-packaged to make it easier to navigate. Also, as Dave expertly steers the site through the ocean of space journalism, blogging and reporting, I am very pleased to see his space blog, Space Disco, has pride of place right at the top of the site.
All that is needed now are some funky social options (perhaps some Twitter, Facebook and Google gadgets–you know me, I love my gadgets!) and Discovery Space will really hit my cosmic funny bone. Great job Dave, your hard work and leadership is really shining through, like a GRB on a dark night! (Sorry, I had to think up a geeky analogy.)
For this week’s Carnival, we are in for a visual delight! For the first time, we have a video stocked full with the weekly run-down of what’s new, fresh and interesting across the entire space blogosphere. Your host this week is my friend Dave Mosher, producer of Discovery Space and blogger for the excellent Space Disco. Being superbly organized, Dave works through a huge number of blogs and includes a transcript of his videofied Carnival. A great, entertaining 3 minuites and 9 seconds, with a peek into Dave’s home in New York.
Dave has raised the Carnival of Space bar very high… I wonder who can top it? I have one idea on how it could be done, but I’ll save that until I get my turn of being host again (although that might be some time…).
