New in Maia: Kristina Killgrove

I have just added the following two blogs to the Maia Atlantis feed aggregator:

title = Kristina Killgrove (Forbes)

creators = Kristina Killgrove
description = Kristina Killgrove's stories.

title = Powered By Osteons

creators = Kristina Killgrove

I'm embarrassed to admit that Powered By Osteons is only now getting into Maia. I've been impressed with and reading it for a long time; I don't know how I failed to include it previously. My apologies to the author!

Removed from Maia Atlantis: Res gerendae

At the request of one of its authors, I have removed the subscription to the Res gerendae blog from the Maia Atlantis feed aggregator. Users of Maia who are interested in content from Res gerendae will now have to follow the blog directly, as its content will no longer be syndicated in the aggregator.
