I don't know how blogs are viewed by math folks. This may be a new medium to some of you. Certainly reading blogs can be a huge time waster, but in my opinion it is also a fairly good format for communication and does allow some participation/feedback sometimes which is nicer than a straight newsletter. RSS feeds can be great time savers, when you set up alerts for tables of contents or specific search strategies and have the results delivered to your RSS reader (like Google Reader or Bloglines), ready when you are ready, instead of filling up your email inbox. Anyway, I thought I'd share the Carnival of Mathematics site in case you are interested in seeing what mathematicians are blogging. Carnivals exist in many subjects; they try to select the "cream of the crop" from recent blog posts in specific subject areas. Of course the "cream" is judged by one person's opinions and opinions certainly vary, especially in the blogosphere. The most recent Carnival of Mathematics was selected by a biology blogger, the author of EvolutionBlog, so that's why I spotted it.
