Happy New Year!
I heard that Killing The Internet is a Thing, and apparently keeping more than a few hundred tabs open in Firefox will do the trick, so I'm doing some blog dumps to get the year kicked off:
Quanta Magazine is an (editorially independent) publication of the Simons Foundation which has been doing some interesting science journalism, beyond the usual channeling or press releases and artificial dichotomy that plagues much of the media:
- These are some of the stories they ran that caught my attention:
- Seeing Cats and Cosmos
- Why RNA is Right Handed
- A New Physics Theory of Life
- Fluid Tests Hint At Concrete Quantum Reality
- Physicists Prove Surprising Rulte of Threes
- Betting on the Future of Quantum Gravity
In practise this is a not-so-private bookmark list, but in case anyone is interested, this is mostly recommended reading.
