I don’t have time to read blogs anymore. And yet, I still have over 211 RSS subscriptions in my Google Reader. To assuage my guilt at having many times the “1000+” posts I haven’t read, I thought I would share some cool sites I’ve come across. Somehow it makes me feel better. Details below the fold, and apologies for not acknowledging where I came across these because I’ve forgotten.
- Mapping the Marvellous: just the most marvelous collection of curiosities and interesting things, written by Marion Endt. She writes, “Books, articles, quotes, images, concepts, theories and thoughts related to my research on collecting, taxonomy, classification, cabinets of curiosities, the history of natural history and surrealism. I created this blog to share and discuss curious chance finds, but it is also intended as a more informal and creative outlet for my research and a means of keeping myself motivated. Footnote-free space where serendipity, randomness and free associations reign supreme.” Very absorbing.
- women’s bioethics project: a group blog where they “have recruited scholars and public policy analysts from around the world to provide daily news and commentary on the implications of bioethical issues for women.”
- Young Black Professional Guide: directed here by contributer DLee, of Urban Science Adventuresand founder of the Diversity in Science Carnival. YBP is fascinating for people of all ethnicities to read.
- Chemical BiLOLogy: written by junior faculty member Arlenna, this blog has a totally fresh outlook on doing the faculty gig in a field totally different to mine.
Enjoy some new reads!
