Miriam Goldstein, marine biologist and blogger, is abandoning her fantastic blog to "spend a year at the center of United States environmental policy." She will serve as a policy fellow and work with the U.S. House Committee on Natural Resources, Democratic staff, "particularly with the Subcommittee on Fisheries, Wildlife, Oceans, and Insular Affairs." It's great to see someone so progressive, intelligent, and digitally-savvy make this kind of move; may the oceans benefit.

    Hopefully she avoids whatever happened to Marty Lederman.

    I’m a bit relieved.  I was afraid someone else had stopped blogging because of trolls.

    George Costanza approves …

    Xeni et al:
    As a former Knauss Fellow, I can tell you that Miriam is in for an outstanding ride (even if the Dems are in the minority right now). The Fellowship puts marine biologists (and other ocean folks, be they MSs, PhDs, JDs, etc) to work in Capital Hill offices and federal agency DC offices. It’s an incredible opportunity for the ocean science community to infiltrate the ranks of decision makers and policy wonks with real salty brains. Check it out: http://www.seagrant.noaa.gov/knauss/
    (And I apologize in advance for NOAA’s totally uninspiring website.)
