Prepare to update your RSS readers: There's a new blog network on the block. Today, Scientific American expanded its blogging efforts to include 39 new sites. According to a press release:
The community of 60 bloggers provides authoritative information and insights about science and technology, and their roles in global affairs. The blog network, overseen by Blog Editor Bora Zivkovic, who serves as moderator for the community, encourages discussion and facilitates the exchange of ideas with both the bloggers and Scientific American readers ... Many of the bloggers focus on the bridge between science and other fields such as philosophy, sociology, music, art, gender and race, hip-hop culture and literature.
Among the offerings are Lab Rat, dedicated to exploring the life and times of bacteria; Disease Prone, which provides a bacteriologist's perspective on the world of disease, infection and pathology; and physiology and neuroscience blog Scicurious Brain.
