I have seen posts recently mentioning a Carnival, but I had no idea what they were talking about. Last night I found this:
I've recently encountered a blogging phenomenon known as the Blog Carnival.* If you are aware of bentley's wonderfulseries, then you are already familiar with the essential concept – an aggregation/roundup of the most interesting posts over a period of time, usually centering on a certain theme. What typically makes the Blog Carnival different from bentley's approach is that the Carnival closes up shop and moves to a new blog location every week. The host blog's author becomes the editor of the Carnival for that week. The advantages of this are:
a) it takes the burden off of a single person
b) new host means new setting and often a fresh editorial perspective
c) willing hosts get great exposure for their blogs and willing readers similarly get exposed to blog authors they may not have encountered previously
Quoted from. What a neat idea! Anyway, if you want to follow the Carnival of Infosciences you can see the complete schedule of stops by reading the thread at .
