A week or two ago, in a comment on the Blogging Groups and Ethics post, I lamented that I always seem to be reading the same librarianish blogs, not mixing it up too much. I wished that we might have a blogging community to assemble around, or at least a good aggregator. Well, Bora Zivkovic…

Blogging groups and ethics

The latest Cites & Insights (v10i11) is out and in it Walt Crawford explores some of the recent developments in the blogging landscape in a section called The Zeitgeist: Blogging Groups and Ethics. It’s a very good overview and analysis of what’s going on both in the science and librarian blogospheres. It’s well worth checking…

Your Hate Mail Will be Graded: A Decade of Whatever, 1998-2008 is a collection of John Scalzi’s favourite posts from the first decade of his blog’s existence. And it’s quite a collection too — of course one that is best taken in short doses, one or two posts per day over a longish period of…

I know I’m sure as hell having a hard time keeping up with all the comings and goings. If anything, the impression is probably that the lights are practically out and we’re all singing Old Lang Syne. This, of course, is far from the case. The lights are still on, we’re most of us blogging…

The last little while has seen an amazing proliferation of science blogging communities. Scientopia, Guardian Science Blogs and PLoS Blogs are only the three most recent that I know of. I think it’s great — the more the merrier I say. Of course, as networks take up more and more space in the science blogging…

Yes, YASBC. Yet another science blogging community. Welcome to PLoS Blogs! From the introductory post: Today we are pleased to announce the launch of PLoS Blogs a new network for discussing science in public; covering topics in research, culture, and publishing. PLoS Blogs is different from other blogging networks, because it includes an equal mix…

Here’s a list of the reasonably active Science & Technology library blogs I know about. I’ve not included medical library blogs in this post because it’s not a field I’m all that knowledgeable about. That list would make a great post in it’s own right, but it’s not this one. My definition of “scitech librarian…

Check it out: Scienceblogging.org. On twitter too! Thanks to Dave Munger, Bora Zivkovic and Anton Zuiker for coming up with what we’ve all been waiting for — a way to keep track of all the new science blogging networks that have been sprouting up everywhere lately. From Bora’s Drumroll, please! Introducing: Scienceblogging.org: But over the…

A blog of substance…

Thanks to Mike the Mad Biologist for tagging me with this meme. Like Mike, I’m not much of a memer, but this one looks interesting (and simple) enough to give a try. The idea is to “Sum up your blogging motivation, philosophy and experience in exactly 10 words” and then to tag 10 further blogs.…
