The Scientist

Check it out: This blog has been linked to by The Scientist* (free registration required) as an example of a "science blog," along with several others. So this is cool, actual journalists read Universal Acid (or, um, know how to use Google...).

Anyway, for those of you coming from The Scientist, click here to find out what this blog is all about, and check "Favorite Posts" on the sidebar for some samples.

*In a typical example of biologists' self-importance (myself included), The Scientist actually just covers life sciences, and mostly biomedical sciences at that. Because, you know, if you're not a biologist, you're not a scientist...

Hey, they included me too, and I'm not a biologist. At least, I don't think of myself as a biologist. But it's strange that they didn't include the new blog Cosmic Variance, or the other physicist blogs.

Hm, so they did... Perhaps the author of the article sees cognitive science as falling under the "penumbra" of life sciences, insofar as minds are (at present) the product of living things. Chemistry also seems to fall under this penumbra via biochem and pharmaceuticals. Particle physics and string theory... not so much.

The more I think about it, the stranger I fnd the apparent equation of scientist with "life scientist" - it suffuses this article as well, as they talk about "science blogs" but only interview people under this life science penumbra (one in pharma, two in bioinformatics, one in pharma VC, one in virology, one in chemistry, one in the "Science Advisory Board," which - of course - is a panel of life science professionals).
