While I’m immersed in writing, planning, and reflection and Alice is uncurling, other people are actually writing the sort of amazing posts that make the blogosphere such a valuable and powerful place to be. These are the sort of posts that make you look at the world a different way or that validate and crystallize…

Remember Bill Nye the Science Guy, that television popularizer of science for kids? Maybe it’s time to give him an update and a facelift. That’s the goal of Susan the Scientist, a project of Dr. Susan Reslewic, who is launching a new blog, myspace, and youtube presence to (in her words): teach ‘citizen science’ to…

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…

So every university has some kind of publication it uses to connect with alumni to say, “Look at all this cool stuff we’re doing, don’t you want to give us money in memory of the cool stuff we did when you were here?” My alma mater keeps sending me such publications; I’m starting to find…

Ever since Erin and Hig walked through the village near our summer cabin in British Columbia, I’ve been reading their blog about walking from Seattle to the Aleutian Islands.

Instead, I am going to point out the at times thoughtful, at times heated discussion going on around the blogosphere about whether…

Link love: B, C, & D

More linky goodness from my saved bloglines. Today’s edition brought to you by the letters B, C, and D. But first a flashback to the A’s: Ask a scientist: What’s the deal with plastic baby bottles? at a Natural Scientist. Jenny’s post is timely for me because I recently found out that after trying to…

Link Love: some A’s

I’ve got a massive backlog of saved posts in my bloglines. These are things new and (really really) old, things I’ve read and loved and things I’ve meant to read. They are posts I’ve wanted to share with you and posts that have touched me deeply. But the post backlog is nearing a threshold point…
