I’m going to take a leaf from Allochthonous’s book (or a page from his blog…) and list the stuff I linked to on Twitter this last week here – mainly to keep a record for myself of the things that struck me as funny, neat or otherwise interesting. I’m @kjhaxton on Twitter.
“The Evolution of Asshatitude on the Internet” a blog post by Greg Laden about online communities and the kinds of bad behaviour we see there. Its a subject close to my heart – if web2.0 is ever going to really work for scientists and educators, we’re going to have to deal with the negative behaviour.
I linked to Stephen Curry’s blog post about making movies of molecules. “Making Movies” over at Reciprocal Space. I absolutely love the short movie Stephen made – just the right balance of chemistry, beautiful structures and geekery!
Hmm, apparently I didn’t tweet too many links this past week. I’ll include a few older but good ones, and for the sake of my sanity, will omit anything to do with the election. Time to move on…
I also would like to recommend a blog (as @SmallCasserole did), A Life In The Day Of A Basics Doc. This is written by RapidResponseDoc and he describes himself as “I am a BASICS Doctor. I am one of a select group of doctors who give up their time to provide medical care at the roadside”. Now, that sounds like an important job.
So that seems to be all non-election stuff I linked to. I think I need to link to more stuff, especially given how many blogs and whatnot I read on a daily basis! So, those of you looking for Sunday evening/Monday morning procrastination, I hope some of these links are interesting!
