terence tao’s blog

Terence Tao, professor at UCLA, is a leading mathematician, and a prodigy as well. He has a wonderful blog about math and science simply called “What’s new?” Much of it is research level math (e.g., “The Kakeya Conjecture and the Ham Sandwich Theorem“), but I think any practicing academic might enjoy his career advice. Skip over parts that are too math specific for your taste, and you get a lot of sound advice and links to other good discussion. A few highlights from his career page:

He also turned his blog into a book, which is neat. Highly recommended.
