"A million words on connections in the history of science, math and technology with images, social history and general found environments.

Welcome! This started in January 2008 as a history of science blog that related to my bookstore, but within the first two months the content spilled over into all sorts of unexpected areas, and I've happily not tried to steer a clear course since then. The categories bar makes sense of the mass of the posts, I think. At this point there are some 1340 posts that number about 950,000 words and 5,000 images. This blog has been referenced or has been re-posted in The New York Times, The Economist, The Wall Street Journal, Boing-Boing, Jezebel, Wired,, the Huffington Post and many other places. Enjoy!"

(Description taken from site.)

Researchers will likely find this site useful as sort of a bibliography of images. Links to static pages on the left lead to selected bibliographies and full text primary sources. Links on the right, below recent posts, divide the blog into categories. Comments are moderated and require free registration.
