Welcome to the Blogiversity

I just realized that the (relatively) recent ScienceBlogs addition Dynamics of Cats is authored by a faculty member from my university. It only took me two months after he came on board to notice Steinn Sigurðsson’s academic affiliation. The two of us, along with Monsieur Bérubé, are representing the school quite well. Additionally, my alma mater has a few biobloggers. Sadly, there is also a growing movement of anti-science on the hill.

How is the blogging scene at your University? If you aren’t an academic, how’s the blogging scene in your town or community?

    Our school recently introduced its own blogging platrform for faculty, staff and students. There are just a few blogs right now and most are still learning the ropes although a couple have taken off quite nicely.

    Science related? Science appears decent, and Aedes aegypti looks pretty.Fred Gould just started, while Cell Lab seems like an aborted project.

    As for blogging in my area sans University, I write about it as lot because it is so amazing! Just check my blog.

    I live in Mauritius, a small island of 1.2million inhabitants. Here’s our community of bloggers.

    You may as well say that it’s a pretty damn small community but it’s a start.

    Glad to see another Cornellian!

    Here in Kansas we have a number of really good bloggers. I’m thinking in particular of Red State Rabble by Pat Hayes at http://redstaterabble.blogspot.com/

    and Josh Rosenau at http://jgrr.blogspot.com/

    both of whom have been closely covering the political hijinks of the Kansas Board of Diseducation. At the community college where I teach blogging has not really penetrated and I am not sure why that is.

    Thanks for the link to DNA Cafe in particular, I hadn’t heard that one. And it is pretty cool to see more Cornell blogs (both former and current Cornellians) and science blogging in general. 😉

    Coturnix – that’s a great idea that NC State has going… I wonder, are other schools introducing similar platforms?
