As you all may know by now, Quantum Diaries is shutting its doors on December 31st. We've been told that the archives will remain up indefinitely, but no more postings or comments will be accepted. So in our last week, we're gearing up to review some of our highlights, and we've been asked to provide our "top 3" blog posts. Here are mine:
- I think my most linked-to posting has to be my "Public Service Announcement: Black holes @ RHIC". Unbelievable timing to be ready with a blog just as probably the most confusing non-issue emerged in a variety of news sources.
- My personal favorite was the piece on "Random Connections, Many Worlds" (narrowly edging-out "Heisenberg Strikes Out"), since it let me play around with so many subjects and media I hold so dear (tv, imdb, physics, rock music) and watch a somewhat poignant message emerge from the chaos.
- Finally, I really enjoyed piecing together "Existential Nihilism at RHIC II" , not in the least because it gave me an excuse to post that amusing photo of Nietzsche!
In any case, you haven't heard the last of me, either this year or next. Have a happy Christmannukwanzaa everyone!
