The carnival is now up at Inessentialism. Alex has done a wonderful job as host, tying the entries together nicely to form a surprisingly coherent whole. As usual, there are plenty of interesting reads on offer. (I was a bit worried about the initial lack of submissions, so added quite a few nominations myself, but there were a few late entries which helped in that regard. Note that as of this writing, a couple of the late entries haven't yet made it into the published carnival, but I think that should be fixed soon.)
I should also note that we need someone to host the next carnival! If you're interested, email me.
