Slight change coming to Biofortified (UPDATE)

posted in: Updates | 1

Editor’s note: The following post was part of an April Fools Joke. Go here for more details.

Biofortified is sharing server space with several other sites that I manage, and the time has rolled around again to renew the account. It doesn’t sound like much when you divide it by 12 months, but when it comes all at once it is quite the pretty penny.

No worries, though! I have just brokered a deal with a new partner that will ensure that Biofortified will be able to stay up indefinitely. Stay tuned, I’ll release the details shortly.

UPDATE, 12 pm:

As per the terms of the new agreement, Biofortified is pleased to welcome William Harvey, the director of global GMO policy for Greenpeace. He will be a frequent commenter here and I think we will all find value in his perspective. As an added bonus, his staff has agreed to handle comment moderation and spam filtering, which is great because I’ve been really busy and can take a step back now.

I’m on the phone with him right now helping to get his first post up. So in time, we will all be able to enjoy the additional discussion that his joining Biofortified will allow.

Karl earned his Ph.D. in Plant Breeding and Plant Genetics at UW-Madison, with a minor in Life Science Communication. His dissertation was on both the genetics of sweet corn and plant genetics outreach. He recently moved back to his home state of California. His favorite produce might just be squash.
