Who should blog in 2013?

The quantum theory blogosphere has seen some great new additions this year:

But this is not enough! Our researchers are legion. And so must it be with our blogs.

There really are a huge number of creative and interesting people in our field, and it would be great if more of them shared their thoughts and opinions online. Therefore, let’s see if the Quantum Pontiff faithful can convince a few people to start blogging in 2013. It doesn’t have to be a lot: let’s say 10 posts for the year.

So leave the name of someone that you’d like to see blogging in the comments section. When we see these people at QIP we can bug them, “Have you started blogging yet?”

I’ll start things off by naming a few people off the top of my head that I wish would blog: David Poulin, Dorit Aharonov, Patrick Hayden. Perhaps we can even goad some weedy unkempt blogs to till their fields again. Matt Leifer and Tobias Osborne, I’m looking at you. :)

    That’s not really fair. I stopped blogging because I am ill. I’ll make you a deal though. If I ever get to the point where I am posting more than one paper to the arXiv per year I will start blogging again.

  3. With Caltech getting its own blog and the very nice (if occasional) CQT blog (http://www.quantumblah.org/), the obvious missing group is IQC: I nominate them for a blog…and they’re not allowed to postpone it as much as that building :-)

      There is already an IQC blog: http://quantumfactory.wordpress.com/

      It seems mostly to be a tool for the outreach team and not very frequently updated, so perhaps of less interest to researchers than some of the others.

      More than just blogs though, I am excited by opportunities to preach the quantum gospel in other media, such as podcasts and video. Q+ was a start, but I might finally try my idea of a monthly panel discussion podcast about arXiv papers this year, perhaps using scirate to (partially) determine which papers get discussed.
