only reconnect

Sometime around my retirement from the world of work, i stopped using an RSS reader to keep easy tabs on all the best in the blogistan. It was entirely my fault.. i couldn’t find a decent (and free) aggregator for OSX. I still haven’t so suggestions welcome whilst I trial netnewswire. But I won’t let this lapse happen again, because already in the 8 hours i’ve been resubscribed, i have learnt many new things

From Pharyngula I have already learnt about what was arguably the most important paper in the development of developmental genetics, modern molecular biology and many other related fields – N¸sslein-Volhard and Wieschaus’s Nobel prize winning work on Drosophila embryonic gene expression.

From Tom Stafford’s Mind Hacks I discovered that there might be a reason why good dancing is sexually attractive because it somehow correlates with body symmetry. Which doesn’t help arythmical muppet impersonators like me but it won’t stop me either.

And thanks his other site Idiolect I was introduced to the febrile imagination of girlsarepretty.com.

I also learnt that Neil Gaiman has a cold, that Justin has had trouble with buses and trains, it was Fridgemagnet who found me those animals on the underground and there is plenty more besides.

Meanwhile i still have very little clue what Jon is on about. But it’s all good.
