What are you reading?

Here's an easy way to get posting.

What are you reading? What are your favorite science related websites? The ones that you visit on a semi-regular basis. Add a new posting or post a reply to this one. Here's a few of my favorites:
  • ScienceDaily - hard to beat for keeping on top of a wide variety of biology. I wish they'd link to the actual articles they summarize, instead of giving you a few clues to track them down, but apart from that it's a great site and not a bad one to use as your homepage.
  • Science of Sport -a little hard to describe but it's a bit like a Freakonomics approach to sport. For a subject that has been obsessed with statistics for many years it is surprising how rarely sport has been analyzed scientifically. They tend to focus on athletic events such as running, swimming and cycling rather than team sports but they don't seem to have any particular rules and plenty of odd subjects crop up.
  • Pharyngula - Evolution, development, and random biological ejaculations from a godless liberal. How words not mine. The author, PZ Meyers is a biology professor at the University of Minnesota. He'll actually be speaking on campus on 'Complexity and Creationism' on January 20th if you are interested.
