Our old Science links page

I’ve been trimming down the links pages connected to this site; the idea of a links page is hopelessly old-fashioned, and neither I nor anyone else was using most of them. But I’ve been copying them into posts, as a way of recording what they looked like.  So, here’s what our list of Science links looked like when it was finally deleted:


(This page most recently updated 12 January 2012)

Since people are saying that this blog is a good source of news about science (well, okay, only one person has said that, but she’s very smart,) it seems right that  there should be a page of links to science news and blogs.

Our own science section

Afarensis99, “anthropology, evolution, and science,” with a blogroll that includes dozens of anthropologically-oriented websites

Andrew Gelman, “statistical modeling, causal inference, and social science.”  In other words, lots of fun little squibs about stuff in the news.

Astronomy Picture of the Day

Blog Around the Clock, chronobiologist “Coturnix” on clocks, animate and inanimate, freestanding and collective

Built on Facts, Matt Springer, physics grad student by day and champion of Enlightenment values by night
