from the urls-we-dig-up dept

Biology is a messy science. Nature doesn't lend itself to nice, orderly categories for people to understand. The tree of life is really tangled, and it's probably a bad analogy to start with.

If you'd like to read more awesome and interesting stuff, check out this unrelated (but not entirely random!) Techdirt post.
