In case you didn’t know, Scientific American has just started a whole herd of “blogs”—39 of them—and you can find the list here. There are some old favorites, some new ones, and even some group websites. If you’ve followed these “blogs” in their previous incarnation, feel free to list your favorites below.
I’d like to give a special shout-out to a new website co-hosted by Kalliopi (Kapi) Monoyios, who illustrated WEIT and Neil Shubin’s Your Inner Fish, and Glendon Mellow, whose work I’ve highlighted previously.
The site is called Symbiartic, and the Sci Am description is this:
This is a blog where the two of them act as hosts and curators. They will look around our network and around the WWW as a whole, to find and present work by other artists in a variety of domains of visual art: art, illustration, data visualization, sculpture, architecture, design, cartoons, comic strips, photography, etc. They will conduct interviews with artists and showcase their work, and invite artists to post guest-posts. They will showcase their own work, and also discuss how the widespread electronic communication is changing the notions of copyright in the visual realm. They will write How-To technique posts and then conduct reader critiques and reader contests. They will also help me choose the “image of the week” for the blog network homepage. If your names seem familiar, it is perhaps because you already saw them on our site – Scientific accuracy in art by Glendon, and Art in the service of science: You get what you pay for by Kalliopi.
