Nature weblogs

Nature.com has gone weblog crazy! The editors of various Nature journals are contributing to weblogs, discussing recent articles and events. Take a look at the following:
Action Potential from Nature Neuroscience
The Sceptical Chymist from Nature Chemistry
Free Association from Nature Genetics.

Actually Nature.com is doing some really fantastics things with social technologies. Not only are they blogging and have set up RSS feeds from various locations on their website, they have a social bookmarking tool, 'Connotea' which allows you to share articles with colleagues and friends, and they're podcasting (sending out audio files each week that you can listen to on your computer, Ipod or mp3 player). The icing on the cake is their mash-up of Google Earth to show how the H5N1 strain of the avian flu is travelling. It's very impressive - make sure you go via the library website to the Nature ejournal link so you can access the full text of any articles discussed.
