South African Skeptic/Science Bloggers Unite

South Africa needs science and South Africa needs prominent scientific voices. Unfortunately, like the media in much of the rest of the world, South Africa's media is not nearly welcoming enough to the skeptical and scientific views of the world. Luckily, we have great examples from the United States and elsewhere of how self-publication through blogs can affect public discourse, promoting science and acting as a counterweight to indifference, ignorance, and gullibility. However, unlike our comrades elsewhere, South African science bloggers are unconnected and not organized. I propose to change that...

If you have a blog, show your support:

Further, if you are on Facebook you can join the "Blog Networks" application. When a blog has 15+ members there is an automatic feeder on the applications homepage which shows excerpts from the blog. That's a good way to get noticed by a lot of south africans :)

I added an RSS feed here:
It will update you on the latest posts by the bloggers in the list above. If you want yourself removed or added to the lists, please contact me.
It is working fine, but since I haven't tested it thoroughly, expect small bugs ;)
