The Lynn Margulis blog tour begins this Monday morning. If you're interested, click this PZ Myers link on Monday and join me over at Pharyngula. According to PZ. Margulis will send a short article that PZ will post that morning. Comments and questions will be addressed that afternoon or evening if she finds them interesting. I'll probably only show up in the afternoon myself.
The blog tour is being done to promote her new imprint of science books called Sciencewriters Books.
If you don't know who Lynn Margulis is, here are some interesting bits of information:
1) She worked on the endosymbiont theory. More.
2) She was married to Carl Sagan.
3) She is a critic of neo-Darwinian theory, but not a Creationist or an Intelligent Design advocate. Her criticism, as far as I can tell, has to do with a neglect of the endosymbiont theory in mathematical neo-Darwinism. I guess those genetic algorithms might be improved if the writers incorporated a little endosymbiosis into their code.
4) According to her wikipedia entry she thinks HIV is not the sole cause of AIDS.
