Note:These pages make extensive use of the latest XHTML and CSS Standards. They ought to look great in any standards-compliant modern browser. Unfortunately, they will probably look horrible in older browsers, like Netscape 4.x and IE 4.x. Moreover, many posts use MathML, which is, currently only supported in Mozilla. My best suggestion (and you will thank me when surfing an ever-increasing number of sites on the web which have been crafted to use the new standards) is to upgrade to the latest version of your browser. If that's not possible, consider moving to the Standards-compliant and open-source Mozilla browser.

Seed Magazine may have more bloggers; they have a magazine to flog. But if you want the very best in physics blogging, we’ve got you covered here on golem. Introducing

The authors are: mathematical physicist and über-blogger-before-anyone-heard-of-blogging, John Baez, philosopher of Mathematics and blogger, David Corfield, and our very own Urs Schreiber, the mainstay of the String Coffee Table

They should be doing some fascinating stuff on the interface between physics and mathematics. So drop by, or follow the action on Planet Musings.

Speaking of the String Coffee Table, since Urs will probably carry his n-categorical thoughts over to the new blog, it might be time to solicit some new members to the SCT, renewing the focus on all facets of string theory and high energy physics. Contact me privately, if you’re interested in getting involved.

Re: Empire

Dear Jacques,

you wrote “if you want best physics blogging, … golem”.

I think that you’re a bit confused. :-)

The problem with Google (Was: Empire)

I came to this page through Google, searching for “n-category-cafe”, even though I really wanted the other hit on this site. Appropriately enough, I see Luboš also using Google. But ironically for him, the top hit is no longer his blog but instead Peter Woit’s! ^_^
