Thanks for the shout out from Urban Science Adventures. That blog tagged this blog, so here I go.
Links I like:
Electronic Village. They publish the monthly Black Blog Ratings as well as some intriguing social and political commentary. Using the metaphor of an African Village, they invite readers to be a part of an e-community, take a seat under the Boabab tree (subscribe), and drum beat (pass on important posts.
BDPA Foundation. It took forever to figure out what those letters stood for - Black Data Processors Association. This the blog to their Education Foundation. As a compliment to this site's dedication to informing more people about STEM (Science, Techology, Engineering, & Math), BETF are a great resource for Technology and some Engineering information. They also share info about programs and scholarships in different U.S. regions.
Education & Class. I stumbled across this one, actually a 6 degrees of separation thing, someone drum beat it (reference to Electronic Village) and I came across it. It's this blog's soul mate. It also blogs about education and socio-economic class issues. But it focuses more directly on education, education funding, and pedagogy.
ScienceBlogs. I'm a scientist first and this is nerd nirvana. A collection and community of 70 science-related blogs. Everything from Acids, Astronomy, Atoms to Medicine, Microbes, Neurology, Oncology, to Zoology and Zygotes.
Consuming Consciousness. I can't remember how I discovered this site...Surely I was procrastinating especially well one night to have discovered it. But if Education and Class is this blog's soul mate, this Consuming Consciousness would be its best friend. This blog is also about socioeconomic issues and class, but it is also about food and nutrition - the politics and pragmatism of it. The blog lists recipes and offers great recommendations for healthy living and eating.
Is that 5? Like Urban Science Adventures, I also like Planning and Preparing for College and Young Black Professional Guide (that was the first website to Blogroll this site...Thanks so much), and the science-related blogs. So some of my thunder was stolen. But everything is good.
Also, click on some of the listed pages below. Some really interesting things going on out on the web.
