Cognitive Daily

Written by Mike Rundle on September 8, 2005

I’m kind of a science writing junkie, I’ll admit. I engulfed Brian Greene’s “The Elegant Universe” in just a day or two, and am really a geek at heart when it comes to this stuff.

Awhile ago Jason Kottke linked to Cognitive Daily and from then on I was hooked. In my opinion it’s the very best science weblog on the net, for the fact that it takes the ordinary and makes it sound extraordinary by using reasoning, science, facts, and analysis. Both writers are respected members of the scientific community, and happen to be married as well. What a winning combination.

Dave and Greta tackle all sorts of real-life scientific topics, check out some of my favorite posts: Critiquing the video game violence studies, Do babies known if hidden objects are still there?, and my all-time favorite: Can our understanding of “normal” and “beautiful” be distorted?. They usually include great diagrams and graphs in their posts, so just in case you’re not up on the latest visuospatial search statistics, they make it easy to understand regardless.

Welcome Dave and Greta! RSS feed.

    Great site. Cognitive psychology is fascinating field.

    And for once you guys can’t be accused of only picking the “pretty” sites.

  3. Ben Askins Says:

    sorry… should read “is _a_ fascinating field”

    I have to learn to read before I click!

    it’s all very cool getting bloggers to join the network, but then i don’t see the new guys’ feeds being added either on the home page or in the opml file.

    it would be nice to update both and let us know so that i can subscribe to the updated opml?

    tks

    Everyone of the members are on the homepage and the OPML feed updates automatically. Now if you get the updated feed depends on your reader, but simply download the updated one and you should be good to go.

    Back on topic … ME!

    Thanks for the wonderful, kind words about CogDaily, everyone. Ben, I’m taking that “not pretty” comment as a compliment.

    Now, time to stop patting myself on the back and get to work on today’s post!

    Hey Dave, it definitely wasn’t intended as an insult :-)

    I’m thankful 9rules added you, otherwise I may not have found you.

    Congratulations!
