I just thought I'd mention that I probably won't be posting for a few days: I'm heading to the Chicago area to go on a fossil hunt with my Dad! On top of that, as soon as I get back the semester starts and I have to make sure my course is in order. I may still throw something on the 'tubes over the weekend, especially if the fossil hunting is fruitful, but no promises!
In other blog news, a flurry of interest in my short post on Leavenworth's underground city catapulted my blog views over 50,000!
Here's a few links for those who need something to read (The Linkin' Log: August 22, 2008):
- Jennifer shares some thoughts on calculus, probability theory, and craps at Cocktail Party Physics.
- Chad does some more research blogging on his own early research at Uncertain Principles.
- For those Neil Gaiman fans (I know you're reading this), Blake over at Science After Sunclipse managed to summon Mr. Gaiman from the internet abyss to set the record straight about the provenance of the song, "I Google You". He also gave the definitive version of the song's lyrics before vanishing in a cloud of electrons.
- Liberal pundits all shift upwards one step on the career ladder! No only is Rachel Maddow of Air America to get her own show on MSNBC, Steve Benen (my favorite political blogger) of The Carpetbagger Report is taking over as the blogger for The Washington Monthly, filling the spot vacated by one of my other favorite political bloggers, Kevin Drum, who is now blogging for Mother Jones. Congrats to, well, pretty much everybody!
