Blake Stacey is a physics boffin who fooled MIT into giving him a degree and has been wandering the Earth ever since.

And he is now a scienceblogger. Here.

Welcome Blake!

I’m so glad, mainly because white on black does not work on Sb. So now I can actually READ his blog!

    This is the real purpose of a feed reader, making it so you only get headaches from the content. Blake was the reason I set one up. However, now I can comment comfortably.

    Congrats to Blake,you have been assimilated and all that….

    Lets talk about feedreaders under Linux lol,now theres one of the few things(like wireless) that im really unhappy about,and have been for years.
    Tried them all,blam and straw and whatever,and they are just not pleasing to the eye,or intuitive,or in any way useful.
    Does anyone have a secret weapon that i have overlooked?

    well, if you don’t have what it takes to mashup the google search API with a perl script using Lynx than I can’t really help you..

    But in the mean time, have you tried LIFEREA?

    It is what I use and it seems fine. Simple, looks good. Always runs. It just works.

    Apparently a lot of us felt the same way about Blake’s original design. I, too, tended to read it via feed. Maybe we should have said something. 🙂 But glad to see Blake getting some deserved props for his excellent “blag.”

    What we are all waiting for, actually, is Blake’s first equation!!! A lot of work is going into this. Can’t wait to see how it turns out.
