It's been a while since I reported on what's newish in my bloglines subs:
- ScienceBlogs -- now up to 49 blogs, I get the feed that aggregates them all. Often over 100 posts a day, it's both overwhelming and indispensible. The range and variety of commentary on both scientific and other issues is stupendous. The only problem is that I really don't have as much of a fix on the personality of the individual blogs as I normally would. Some of the newer ones are still only very vaguely imprinted on my consciousness.
- Schneier on Security -- great blog covering security & IP issues.
- Cosmic Variance -- "Cosmic Variance is a group blog by five people who, coincidentally or not, all happen to be physicists and astrophysicists." Good blog covering a very wide range of scitech & other topics. Always something worth reading.
- Rationally Speaking by Massimo Pigliucci is a philosophy of science blog, covering a wide range of non-science topics too. Seems like a natural for the next wave of ScienceBlogs migrations.
- Curious Cat Science and Engineering Blog -- "Science and Engineering: Innovation, Research, Education and Economics." Wide-ranging blog, always covering interesting stuff.
- Applied Abstractions -- "Technology, strategy, IT management and miscellany." Good links & commentary, like Why Professors Should Blog.
- O'Reilly Radar -- I've tried for a while to find a good feed from O'Reilly. They all seem to crap out after a while. This one has lots of good posts from various staffers, including Tim O'Reilly himself. One of Tim's recent ones is Quality of Book Digitization.
- Rants of a feminist engineer and Absinthe -- two good blogs by women in scitech fields.
- The Laughing Librarian and A Librarian's Guide to Etiquette -- because we all need a good laugh.
- The Linda Hall Library Weblog -- not that much activity yet, but potentially interesting.
- CRITICAL MASS -- "the blog of the national book critics circle board of directors." Coverage of the publishing industry, with the occasional highly relevant post such as Using Books to Get Women Into Science
- Galleycat.com: a blog about books and publishing. Similar to Critical Mass but more light-hearted with more coverage of genre fiction.
It's notable that I haven't added too many new library links in the last several months. Mostly this is because I'm pretty well covered with those and wanted to beef up my scitech blog list. There's a lot of the A-List library blogs I don't read regularly, so I should probably look to adding a few of those. As well, I really haven't taken the time yet to go through Walt's big list of the Great Middle to see what catches my fancy.
Update: Added link to O'Reilly Radar.
