Last week Doug Natelson noted a drop-off in active physics blogs. This had not gone unnoticed hereabouts, though I couldn’t immediately think of what to say about that. Yesterday, though, former ScienceBlogs wrangler Christopher Mims provided a possible answer: Google+ has destroyed blogging completely.
I would’ve liked to find a way to tie all this together into a deep and meditative blog post about the nature of blogging and the reasons for the decline of physics blogging specifically (to the extent that this is a decline, which is somewhat debatable). I have a faculty meeting to go to this morning, though (Yes, in the summer. Shoot me now.), so all you get is this silly radio-button poll:
This is a classical poll, so please cast only one vote at a time. And if you know of (or write) new and notable physics-oriented blogs, feel free to leave a link in the comments.
