Those who feel that they haven’t been getting their fix of geeky news from this blog recently (I have been too busy to investigate things unrelated to my official studies) may want to have a look at Cocktail Party Physics. Written by Jennifer Ouellette, it seems to include a pleasantly esoteric collection of disciplines and scientific discussions. Recent entries discuss satellites testing General Relativity, computing with bubbles, and the chemical properties of gemstones. The posts I have glanced at are well written, and have a nice personal touch to them.
I will be done the thesis, and back to my old self, by tomorrow night.
