Maggie Koerth-Baker at FiveThirtyEight

I always wondered what had happened to Maggie Koerth-Baker, who I greatly admired while she was writing here.

Turns out she’s taken her old column, Science Questions from a Toddler, and resurected it over at FiveThirtyEight. Hey!

Oh well, I guess the pay was better. :wink:


Good news, thanks for sharing it!


Ditto. I miss he posts here.

I was checking FiveThirtyEight for campaign news today, when I noticed an older article linked from the BEST OF section called “Tornado Town, USA.”

I wondered if Tornado Town was a reference to Moore, Oklahoma.

It was.

And then I noticed the author. OMG THAT’S MAGGIE!!!

She has posted, like, thirteen articles in the last month.

Wonderful news.

MKB was one of the main reasons I read BB. Glad she has a new home over there. Guess I wander over and give them some eyeballs.
