Old Folks Wing of the Blogodome

By Sean Carroll | March 10, 2009 6:19 pm

The end of February marked five full years of blogging for me. And did anyone send me a cake? No, they did not.

After a half-decade, I can slack off a bit while I finish the book. But here are some other goodies to keep you entertained on the internets:

A few months ago, friend-of-the-blog George Musser from Scientific American visited us here in LA, and had some fascinating stories about the process of equipping his house with solar power. We were like: dude, that is totally bloggable. And so it is! George is telling his tale in a series of posts at the SciAm 60 Second Science site.

Malcolm MacIver, a versatile engineer/philosopher/neuroscientist at Northwestern University, also flew out to LA a short while back to help the Science and Entertainment Exchange with a consultation for the upcoming sequel to TRON. He is now blogging about the experience at Northwestern’s Science in Society blog: here, here, here.

The 2008 edition of The Open Laboratory, collecting science blog posts from around the web, is now on sale. Thanks to Bora Zivkovic and Jennifer Rohm for doing the heavy lifting.

As always, use these threads to pimp out other things people should be reading.
