As some background here, Jeremy Crampton set up the Foucault Blog in March 2007 to post news on Foucault related activity. In August 2010, he announced that he was moving on to other interests and starting another blog. At that point, I offered to take over from him in maintaining a web news presence on all things Foucault. I know how much work Jeremy put into this, so I will see how long I can sustain it! As I have said above, please send me any items you think may be of interest.
