I’ve recently added some extra science blogs to the blogroll, and will let you check them out for yourself. Over time I’ve removed various blogs from the roll because they were no longer being updated or because they’d lost my interest for some reason, and the list was running low enough that I felt the time had come to replenish it. So I looked at all the blogs on the rolls of science blogs I already read, and chose what I felt were the best of those. Some of them are blogs I’ve seen before, while others are entirely new to me.
Speaking of science blogs, the new blogging site Scientopia is worth a browse. I’m keeping one eye on Child’s Play, an interesting new blog about child development research. A little lacking in variety so far, but give it time.
On Australian politics, this article from the Sex Party raises important issues that I think all Australians should bear in mind at the election this month. Meanwhile, good news on the Internet filter.
I hope Phil Plait’s no-longer-secret project makes it to Australia as quickly as possible.
I’d like to draw your attention to my comments on a blog post about motion sickness, particularly comment #9. I tell an anecdote there that I’ve always considered too miscellaneous to mention here on this blog, but it might interest you. Feel free to take it up in the comments here.

In dinosaur news, Torosaurus and Triceratops may well be the same animal.

An interesting article from 2009 on the history of Times New Roman.
