Charles Darwin's Works Online

The complete works of Charles Darwin have been digitized. Check it out.

Ick. I can't read stuff online. Too much staring at a CRT passively gives me a splitting headache. And printing it out is just a pain.

But I picked up that big collected works edition when I was at the Chicago Field this summer (and a follow-up post), so I'm good. I want to get through The Ancestor's Tale first, though (just started it the other day, only about 30 pages in).

BTW, you know you can trash individual comments, right? You don't actually have to go into moderation to get rid of the troglodytes.

Oh yes, I know that I can trash our occasional blathering Banned. I thought about it. But I'll leave him up for now--I believe in freedom of speech, and he obviously wants a feather in his cap that I'm not willing to give him, but picking on Lalla was pushing it. Disgusting.

Wasn't the Darwin exhibition supposed to be at the Field Museum? Was it there when you were there?

There was a very good exhibit about evolution there called Evolving Planet. Is that the one you mean?

There was actually an exhibition of Darwin's manuscripts and specimens in NYC, and it was supposed to go to Chicago sometime this year, then to London next year. It was an exhibition devoted to him.

No, that one wasn't there. Just the evolution exhibit.
