Top five science blogs

Weblogs written by scientists are relatively rare, but some of them are proving popular. Out of 46.7 million blogs indexed by the Technorati blog search engine, five scientists’ sites make it into the top 3,500. Declan Butler asks the winners about the reasons for their success. Myers, a biologist at the University of Minnesota, Morris, puts his top rank down to “tapping into the broader areas of liberal politics and atheism” and a rich vein of “resentment against the reactionary religious nature of American culture”.
