A few quick updates on Belly Button Biodiversity and related projects:
- Azeen Ghorayhshi recently wrote a short bit for Wired Magazine UK recently about Belly Button Biodiversity.
- You can now download and take a gander at the second and final batch of data from Belly Button Biodiversity. The available file contains both taxonomic information (OTU tables) and meta-data self-reported from our last batch of participants. These are the same data we used to generate the interactive pie chart.
- In late October, over 50 folks stopped by the NC Museum of Natural Sciences to participate in artist Joana Ricou’s Bellybutton Portrait Series. Joana has recently launched a tmblr site to share these portraits virtually before they go on display at the Eden Project in Cornwall, UK.
