The Giant’s Shoulders #55: Curiosities, Utility and Authority, is out!

The 55th edition of the history of science blog carnival The Giant’s Shoulders is up at The Sloane Letters Blog!  In this carnival, you can read about:

  • Sir Arthur Conan Doyle and the sea monster,
  • 19th century advice on making your own ghosts,
  • Charles Babbage’s war on street noise,
  • and much more!

Many thanks to Lisa Smith for putting together an excellent edition of the carnival!  The next edition will be held at The Dispersal of Darwin, and entries are due on the 15th of February.  They can be sent directly to the carnival host or to me or ThonyC at Renaissance Mathematicus.

As always, we’re in desperate need for future hosts of the carnival to keep it going! Please let us know if you’re willing to host a future edition.
