Blogs I follow, for those who are now addicted to Science-y blogs...

So it was requested of me to post what blogs I personally follow so I will list them below.

As I said in the first blog for the series in Cesky Krumlov...I most likely will let this blog go dormant until I have something useful to say, but for those of you who would love to get daily musings from other scientists in the field who post of a semi-regular/daily basis let me wett your appetite for what's out there and you can search on your own too.

Normally I subscribe via RSS/Google reader. If you have google reader and there isn't an RSS subscribe button on the blog simply copy/paste the URL into google reader and it'll subscribe to what's posted at the URL.

Happy Reading!
