Wow, that was fast. I would write, but I'm not sure that I could add much. Maybe in the near future, after I get a feel for what is appropriate.

i am just wondering. What kind of texts do you guys want for the content of this blog ? I mean shouldn't it be about the science and not some guy's personal favourite QM-textbooks ? What is the use in that ? Just wondering...

I do think this is a great initiative with lots of potential, Greg.

No, that is exactly what people like about blogs -- reading entertaining/controversial opinions from people they know and respect. A blog is not a replacement for a news service, it is more like a talk radio station.

Thanks for clarifying that.

If i wanna share an opinion on this blog, how do i do this ?

It is about science, think talk radio for science. Here are some blog examples to see the format and writing style of blogs:

http://www.sixthform.info/maths/index.php
http://www.physics.uiuc.edu/blog.htm
http://javablogs.xyling.com/
http://www.j2eegeek.com/blog/

Checkout my latest blog post. It's casual like that.

Think about the difference between CNN, and Rush Limbaugh. CNN is just supposed to report the news, as objectively as they can. Rush Limbaugh reports the news and then comments on it, usually in a controversial manner. Whether you agree with him or not, you listen because you find it entertaining, or because you love to hate him. A science blog is about science in the same way that Limbaugh's radio show is about politics.

Here are two examples of science bloggers who are controversial in an intelligent way: Peter Woit and Lubos Motl. Their blogs are mainly about string theory -- Lubos is a supporter, Peter is a critic (kind of like "Crossfire" for physics). I find them entertaining reads even though I don't understand half of what they are talking about!

Peter Woit:

Okay... I registered and logged in. But I don't know where to go. (I never blogged before.)
When I click on any link in the "Latest Activity" box, I get "You do not have sufficient permissions to access this page."
