  • Links
  • Needs more organization
Being an interesting site on which I wrote about in this column five years ago, ScienceMan is due for an updated report and I'm happy to oblige. ScienceMan.com is pretty much a links-based site spanning biology, chemistry, ecology, geology, and physics. Organization is a strong point, with subject headings providing the main means of access to the information. I found the actual links in each category to be quite varied, but I was disappointed that they were rather randomly arranged. Alphabetization of the site names should be at least a minimal priority. In addition to the subject-specific categories, there are also links to general science sites (BBC, for example) that appear to be a concession to more general education. Don't be misled, though. The site has a lot to offer to scientists, as well.
