I just named a new dinosaur!

It’s true — when I am not programming, one of my other passions is sauropod dinosaurs, and I’m a part-time palaeontologist.  Today, the paper describing the new sauropod Brontomerus came out; I’m the lead author on the international team of three.  Read all about it over on my other blog, Sauropod Vertebra Picture of the Week.

  1. The subtitle of this blog is now a barefaced lie!

  2. Very cool! My son loves dinosaurs and now there’s a new one to learn about :)

  3. I’m sorry, I have to take issue with the whole idea of a ‘NEW’ dinosaur.

    Belated congratulations. I was obsessed with dinosaurs as a kid. I lived in walking distance of the Smithsonian when I was four and I used to nag my mother into taking me over there to look at the dino displays a lot.

    I’m always impressed when people who are ostensibly “laymen” do good work in a technical field. I’m really impressed when it involves dinosaurs!
