My Favourite Blog Carnivals

What is a Blog Carnival, you ask? A Blog Carnival is simply a blog posting that brings together in one place links to some of the best recent blog articles on a given topic.

My Favourite Blog Carnivals are:

Tangled Bank Excellent Science Carnival
The Synapse Neuroscience Carnival
Grand Rounds Medical Carnival

Blog Carnivals typically travel from blog to blog, which is an excellent way of getting to know new blogs. Following the carnival links themselves is a fine way to acquaint oneself with new and worthy blogs.

Carnivals come and go. The Carnival of Tomorrow is a fine blog carnival for futurist and singularitarian bloggers that is temporarily in stasis. Al Fin was fortunate to be included in a few COTs during COT's vibrant phase.

Go ahead and look at lists of carnivals here and here. You may very well find carnivals that suit your taste, and that might become your favourites. I hope so. The web has many fine features for which we should be grateful, and blogs and blog carnivals are some of the finest.

: Go here for the latest edition of Synapse. Thanks to Dr. Serani.

Update 2: Another good neuro-carnival is Encephalon. I am not certain how long both Synapse and Encephalon will continue to exist "in competition," but there is certainly enough new information in neuroscience and cognition to support two carnivals.
