skippy and Jonn Swift and Blue Gal are spearheading the Blogroll Amnesty Day (read the detailed instructions in there) again this year.

This weekend, a long weekend starting today and lasting four days, you are supposed to use the above logo, link to the Blogroll Amnesty Day post and link to five blogs that have either smaller traffic or narrower reach than you, or at least are new and unknown to your readers. Then e-mail your permalink to skippy.

Let's promote the new and smaller voices that you think should be known by a wider audience!

I could, of course, list 50 or 500, but I'll stick to the rules and, after agonizing for a long time, suggest these five blogs for you to check out:

Urban Science Adventures!
FYI: Science!
Endless Forms
Dara Sosulski's blog
The Extrovert Scientist

Some people have taken blogroll amnesty day the wrong way—or perhaps it has been used in the wrong way. Jon Swift registers the impression that this was an undemocratic purge that simply re-enthroned the same old elites and tossed the little guys on the scrapheap. But the more I learned about this…

Yeah, and that list would be almost totally worthless. When a friend comes to town and asks you to recommend a restaurant, do you pick 2 or 3 good ones, or hand him all 16 pages of restaurants listings in the phone book?
