Sci Blogs

Here are some more blogs and website links of a more general science-y nature. There are squillions of these of course, so this is a pretty random selection..

SCIENCE BLOGS

Cosmic Variance One of the first science blogs and still one of the best. A multi-author blog, with a lively readership.

Three Quarks Daily Very broad culture/science/arts/politics blog. Its an aggregator, i.e. collects articles from other places, but its all top notch stuff.

Letters to Nature Another multi-author science blog. V.erudite. (My daughter once asked me what erudite means. I said it describes the kind of person who knows what erudite means.)

Pharyngula : blog by infamous sceptical biologist PZ Meyers. Richard Dawkins favourite blog. I think I read somewhere.

Corycia. One of the more obscure classical references… This is Hywel Owen, who used to work at Daresbury, but who has moved on to better things.

SCIENCE and SPACE NEWS

Space Weather : news and info about the Sun-Earth environment. Keep up with the latest solar flares and when to see the ISS.

New Scientist Space Section.

BBC Science News

Space Links : lots and lots of ‘em

Space Politics and NASA Watch : cos sometimes the most important orbit is the Beltway.

Cosmic Log : Space-y news from NBC journalist Alan Boyle.

The Daily Galaxy Multi-author Smorgasbord of science newsy stuff.

GEEK STUFF

Woz.Org Steve Wozniak’s web site. The cure forĀ  Apple brainwashing.

Engadget Keep up with the latest boy-toys.

Cringely’s Pulpit Bob Cringely has been writing a blog for years before anybody invented blogs. The oldest and best IT-industry-insider type blog. Usually funny and spot on the money. But .. gulp.. he says he is going to stop soon.

The Daily Ack : Our very own Fluffy Bunny Alasdair Allan in Exeter. Read this if you really are a geek.

Internet Duct Tape : I have soft spot for this geeky blog, as it gave me my first guest blog-spot, which zoomed my ratings up.

Scobleizer : industry-insider-type-blog from Robert Scoble.

BBC Technology News.

CHIN UP

lol science Bizarre science-y version of the v.popular “I can haz cheezburger“. Look, I can’t explain, just have a look.

xkcd. Just absolutely the best comic on the net. Some days you don’t get it. And other days you are helpless for several minutes.

Recycling Sheep. Well Hell I don’t know. I just like the idea of being cross-linked with a blogger who is obsessed with knitting.
