And the Angry Birds physics press machine rolls on…
Many thanks to Tyler Dukes, a correspondant at the Charlotte Observer who wrote this nice little piece about my blog and physics teaching.
The really cool thing is this is one more installment in Tyler’s bi-weekly series of features on people in the science blogging community. I’m humbled that Tyler considers me part of this community, but more importantly, I think it’s awesome that a medium sized newspaper is still willing to devote resources to a topic like science education and blogging. Tyler has profiled many of the big names in science blogging, and even though he’s been at this for more than a year, he says he’s really just begun to scratch the surface.
Here are some of his other profiles you should check out (it occurs to me that it would be awesome if someone would compile a RSS bundle of all of Tyler’s profiled blogs):
- Andrew Maynard, director of Risk Science at University of Michigan School of Public Health, 2020science.org and umrscblogs.org.
- David Winter, PhD student in evolutionary genetics, and author of The Atavism.
- Scott Huler, author of Scientific American Plugged-in
- And of course, no feature on science bloggers would be complete without the godfather of physics bloggers, Rhett Allain, author of Dot Physics
Here’s a link to the search of the Observer that turns up most of Dukes’s other works.
