Project Update

The work on Origin of Species presented on this site was done as a term project for a class during the fall of 2010. For the fall of 2011, this project has been extended as an independent study. The work is still in progress but more information will be available in January 2012 concerning how the updated version will be distributed.

One of the most surprising things to come out of this project was the continued readership after the Origin chapter summaries were finished. The site still generates approximately 100 page views per month from a variety of IP addresses around the world. The entire motivation behind this project was to present an accessible, and neutral look at Darwin's works for the general public. I think that by virtue of the summaries still being read by unique visitors from a variety of countries that this accessibility and presentation goal has been a success.

Thank you for your readership, and I hope to share the in depth and improved Darwin project with you in the beginning of 2012.
