The Last Word on Nothing
The Last Word On Nothing is a joint blog by some extremely talented science writers: I can only hope to one day be as supercool and incredibly badass as this group of people. There are some pretty cool things that you'll probably never have heard of, and the writing is...just superb.
Some LOWN posts to check out:
- Physicist Makes Movie (If you didn't hear about physicists finding "the God particle" then where were you living last summer?)
- Buddha, Space, Meteorites, and Nazi Science
- Everything in the Thank God It's Penis Friday series. I have laughed so hard I almost cried reading several of these posts.
One of the writers on LWON is Ann Finkbeiner, who wrote one of the books that got me excited about science writing in the first place: The Jason: The Secret History of Science's Postwar Elite. A few months ago, Ann asked if I'd be interested in writing a guest post for LWON. Obviously I said yes. Last week, I finally sent her a silly little thing I'd been toying with off-and-on for a few months, and apparently she doesn't hate it. I'll share a link when it is up. At any rate, please go check out some of those pieces linked above.
