Blogospheric news:

Students, faculty and staff of the Program in the History of Science, Technology and Medicine at the University of Minnesota, of which I will soon be a proud alumna, now have a blog for news, events, etc. It’s inspired by the Logan Lounge, UPenn’s program blog, but will hopefully be updated more frequently; that basically everyone in the program is free to post will hopefully ensure that. There’s a post up right now about the HSTM team, “Maxwell’s Demons,” in last weekend’s pond hockey tournament.

It was also brought to my attention that HSS’s Forum for the History of Science in America has a blog which is at least in part masterminded by my erstwhile colleague Susan Rensing. It has various fellowship announcements and also keynote speeches from the Forum’s annual meeting. Of note is the blogroll there, a brief snapshot of many of the blogs I can think of that are written by historians of science (including PH, natch).

Over on the Minnesota Sesquicentennial blog, it’s looking like they’ll post a “on this day in Minnesota history” post every day of the year. January is apparently brought to us by an elementary school class in Edina. I learned last week that Tippi Hedren was a Minnesotan.

That’s all for now; I’ll be talking about the Hinckley fire later in the week.
