A cockaigne of science blogs

[lang_en]A new blog for my blogroll has been discovered. Not a single blog at all, but a multiblog initiative, called scienceblogs.com. As I am always searching for interesting and stimulating blogwork about scientific topics from scientists, often being stars on the black sky of often occuring blogging-nonsense, repetition and self citation, this seems to be a really nice starting point. Even if it is initiated by a publishing house. It is well known how difficult it is to control weblogs‘ posted opinions and it is well known how difficult the same is with scientists, capable of thinking on themselves. Thanks to the German blogger Basic for his new focus on science blogs. I have not yet got enough time to check the more than 60 blogs on scienceblogs.com but the self description sounds promising. Maybe my blog reader and my blogroll will shortly increase:

From climate change to intelligent design, HIV/AIDS to stem cells, science education to space exploration, science is figuring prominently in our discussions of politics, religion, philosophy, business and the arts. New insights and discoveries in neuroscience, theoretical physics and genetics are revolutionizing our understanding of who are are, where we come from and where we’re heading. Launched in January 2006, ScienceBlogs is a portal to this global dialogue, a digital science salon featuring the leading bloggers from a wide array of scientific disciplines. Today, ScienceBlogs is the largest online community dedicated to science.

From now on Quantinger(de) and Complexity Club Erlangen(de) and in a wider sense also the OSA student chapter blog HbarOmega(en) (currently under reconstruction) need not feel so lonely any more in my blogroll.
