51 Best Physics Blogs

A few other people got the same email I did, promoting a list of the 50 Best Physics Blogs put together by Accredited Online Colleges Dot Org. It's a fine list, with one glaring problem: They didn't include Matt Springer's Built On Facts. As you can probably tell from its frequent tagging for the daily links dump, I'm a big fan, and think Matt's got one of the best physics blogs going.

I could probably come up with a blog or two that I'd drop off the existing list, but that would be impolitic. So let's just add him as the 51st blog, leaving us one blog shy of a pack of cards. The comments of this post would be an excellent place to suggest who ought to be #52 (or maybe two additional blogs, so we could have a couple of jokers), or attempt to assign suits and values to the various blogs on the existing list.

Richard Wallis of Talis (a library-systems vendor) posted The Data Publishing Three-Step to the Talis blog recently. My reaction to this particular brand of reductionism is… shall we say, impolitic. I just want to pat Richard on the head and croon "Who's the clever boy, then? You are! Yes, you are…
Did you ever hear the expression, "You're a real card!" Well, if you are a notable woman in the physical sciences, you just might be a card! My sister has a project, and Amanda and my niece Koren and some others are involved, that puts notable women in the physical sciences on cards, with a bit of…
When you want to know how much energy is emitted into space by radiation from a given object—say, a star—and the answer resembles this: it's good to have someone like Matt Springer around to explain it to you. Matt, ScienceBlogs' newest blogger, writes Built on Facts, and his posts are suitably…
The all-consuming, all-devouring, ScienceBlogs collective has assimilated another victim. Go say hi to Matt Springer, who blogs about physics over at Built on Facts. Matt is a graduate student in physics at Texas A & M university. He writes: New posts generally appear every morning,…

Dude, those sites are nothing but link spammers. It's the same for the "Top 50 Women Science Blogs"--which is on some BestPhlebotomyTechnicianSchools cockamamie Web site--and all the other happy horseshit. The only reason they exist is to get credulous bloggers like you to link to them. It's total garbage.

what? no "Starts with a Bang?" what kind of list *is* this? I second PhysioProf.
