*Not Even Wrong*

#### Posted by Aaron

The physics blog-wars have hit the world of publishing with Peter Woit’s *Not Even Wrong* and Lee Smolin’s *The Trouble with Physics*. Having given up blogging long ago, I still seem to have spent an inordinate amount of time in these internet trenches. Since Dr. Woit was kind enough to send me a review copy of his book, once more into the breach I suppose. Here is my contribution to the chorus of reviews that will surely be appearing. Like the book, it is aimed at the general public rather than towards physicists.

Any comments and corrections are greatly appreciated. The first paragraph follows after the jump.

### The n-Category Café

#### Posted by Urs Schreiber

A new group blog has been created.

It’s hosted by John Baez, David Corfield and myself.

The café is supposed to be the right place for the sort of discussion of mathematical physics that you know from John’s This Week’s Finds in Mathematical Physics, maybe from some of the stuff that I have been posting here, hopefully close to the constructive style that is practised on David’s blog.

We are very glad to be able to use Jacques Distler’s sophisticated blog technology.

I will probably move much of my activity from the coffee table to the café.
