A small but worldwide community of women has developed to blog about science. Their writings are original and informed. Unlike some other corners of the blogosphere, we do not waste electrons sniping at each other. The men do that more than enough, giving lie to the myth that women are the catty ones. In my absence, I heartily recommend:
Mahndisa whom I know from student days in California.
Arcadian Functor Kea is talking at Macquarie University in Sydney today!
Christine's Background Independence She has a PhD in astrophysics.
Backreaction Bee has the latest on subjects from the strings to dark matter.
Rae Ann is last but not least for her good taste in music and common sense.
I thank all of the above for their helpful comments. Future posts here will focus on science and continue to be positive.
