Dot Physics

Dot Physics Census

This is Tom’s fault (Swans on Tea). He suspects that most of the physics blogs are read by physics bloggers.

I have kind of been avoiding this, but I guess I need to know who my readers are. Actually, there are two groups of readers – regular readers and googlers. So, who are you?

If you are a blogger, maybe you could list your blog in the comments. I will post the results after some time (or live if I figure that out).

Responses so far

I don’t know how to make this live, so I will just update it every once and a while.


Here is a list of what was submitted as “other” (at this time)

  • grad student
  • url
  • Executive, tech person – but not a scientist, blogger
  • grad student
  • Computer consultant

  • middle school physical science teacher

    Sorry, I had to select three categories. None of the three describes me better than the other two. As to my blog, you’ve been kind enough to provide a link in your blog roll thereby causing me great pride.

    I feel a bit uneasy about making a comment just to link to my blog, but since you asked here goes:

    I am a high school physics teacher, but I also blog about educational technology and run professional development sessions on educational technology.

    @Rob and @David

    Good points – you could easily be more than one (I would be more than one). I guess just choose the one that best describes you.

    “Other” seems pretty popular, and the responses there would be interesting to see. For example, I combined college student with blogger in the other category (though until very recently I would have combined tech person + blogger).

    @Nick – I listed some of the others above for you.

    Well, I blog, but mainly for my relatives and friends. So I picked high school physics teacher, because I am. And today, I had an awesome day of teaching, and I am about to write about it in my blog!
