A few items that might have deserved full posts had I not become strangely obsessed with lists of science books:
- Chemical blogspace is a chemistry blog aggregation service using the Postgenomic software. It aggregates a total of 125 blogs.
- A series of CBC Radio shows called How to Think about Science consisting of interviews with scientists such as Simon Schaffer, Lorraine Daston and Margaret Lock. via A Blog around the Clock
- The site for The Scientist Lab Website and Video Awards has a list of links to a bunch of great lab websites. A lot of super cool stuff for us Science 2.0 types to gaze at in wonder. I wish more of them would have blogs so we could get an idea of what's happening at the labs on a daily or weekly basis.
- And speaking of labs with blogs, via The World's Fair, The Redfield Lab at UBC is a place where everyone is required to have a blog, from The Boss Rosemany Redfield to all the postdocs, students and even the work study student.
- Janet Stemwedel of Adventures in Ethics and Science polls her freshman Engineering Ethics about cheating...with discussion here and here.
- A huge post at Coding Horror on The Big Ball of Mud and Other Architectural Disasters that relates building code to building buildings, from shacks to urban sprawl to total demolition. A great post building on this classic paper. I love Coding Horror -- it's easily one of my favourite CS blogs.
