Wil Wheaton dot Net

Star Trek fans may remember Wil Wheaton as Wesley Crusher from Star Trek: The Next Generation. Well, little Wesley Crusher has grown up and now writes a pretty nice blog called WWdN (WIL WHEATON dot NET). This blog is of the day-in-the-life variety, but Wheaton posts often, and his anecdotes are interesting. I admit I was never a fan of Wesley Crusher, but thanks to WWdN, I have a little more appreciation for Wil Wheaton. :-)

Bill the Lizard

We'll start the new year (and decade) with a somewhat geeky blog called Bill the Lizard. The blog is oriented towards topics related to math and computer science. However, the author has written many of the articles for the layperson who doesn't have a math degree. (The computer programming examples are in a language called Scheme, which most people probably won't understand.) For example, one of the most popular posts, Six Visual Proofs, is an example of explaining mathematical concepts in an easy-to-understand way that non-math people can grasp. I found that the blog actually increased my interest in math rather than turning me off of it.
