What physics blogs are all about

This post exemplifies the best that a physics blog can offer (arguably). Present a graph ubiquitous in some sub-field, and explain what it's all about and why it's important.

This post begs the question, "what's the worst example of a physics blog?" Oh, I don't know, maybe someone who ridicules nearly everyone, and who, at the same time, thinks he's actually censoring himself? (I'm kidding a bit because I find Lubos' tirades funny, and find Woit's restraint quite remarkable.

Wow, hey, thank you!
I'll try to keep writing that kind of stuff...

Cheers,

Note that Woit is *Peter* Woit, and than Lubos is a word meaning "Wolf". So the whole issue is a parody of Peter and the Wolf. The smart people at Harvard, instead of faking a Wolf, have simply scanned the list of available postdocts to find one. Smart pranksters.

You're welcome. You know, I was thinking that all (or a bunch) of the physics bloggers should have a virtual conference of some sort. Not sure why, but it sounds cool.
