Redecorating ScienceBlogs

ScienceBlogs has just redesigned the main site. Sort of. The change is subtle enough that you might not notice it– the only real difference on the front page is that the “channel” list has been reorganized– it’s now slightly shorter, and some old channels have been combined into new ones.

There are two practical advantages to this: on the back end of things, this allows the individual bloggers to put a post in two channels at the same time, which is great for things that straddle the boundary between two areas. Also, the new channel pages feature pictures, with the Physical Science page currently graced by a picture of my lab, so that’s a nice bonus.

There are presumably disadvantages as well. Here’s a comment thread for you to complain about stuff in.
