A changing lineup for Discover's blogs

Curtis Brainard at CJR writes about several major bloggers leaving Discover's network just as the print magazine packs up and moves from New York to Waukesha, Wisc., with a new staff. Gone soon to National Geographic are Carl Zimmer and Ed Yong. Also leaving are Phil Plait for Slate and Sean Carroll for his own site. Writes Brainard: "The changes in Discover’s blog lineup reflect increasing competition among different outlets to capture the best science bloggers."
