My picks – 1st January 2012
Not Exactly Rocket Science is a science blog I read almost daily. It is written by Ed Yong. Every week he posts a collection of links (like this) that interested him in the past week.
Shamelessly copying from him, I too felt that I can list some links every week so that those interested can read them. There are many advantages to this. First, it will hopefully be a useful resource to readers who have free time and wondering what to read on the internet. Second, it helps me keep a record of the interesting links that I have read so that I can come back to them if I need them. The final reason is this. My wife keeps asking me if anybody bothers to read this blog. Just in case, you are one of those who don’t want to read what I write, you might at least want to read what I read. So this is for you.
Here are this week’s links.
To end this post, here is a nice quote from Richard Feynman about physics, that I came across this week.
Physics is like sex: sure, it may give some practical results, but that’s not why we do it.
