Ed Boyden, a neuroscientist over at MIT/Technology Review, has started a general-interest science blog. I'm happy to see this, as Ed seems not only smart, but prone to write frankly and creatively about deeply relevant issues.
Another interesting, rather speculative piece I'd direct people toward is "Is There Anything Good About Men?" - American Psychological Association, Invited Address, 2007, Roy F. Baumeister.
I've not decided whether I agree with his conclusions, and since it's a conference address it's a little citation-lite, but it's a thoughtful and thought-provoking mix of fact, theory, and conjecture.
Back to paper writing.
