  1. Via Rahul Siddharthan, we have a link to the blog of the Department of Biotechnology (DBT), with posts by Prof. K. VijayRaghavan and other officials at DBT.

  2. Rahul's post talks about institutional leaders who blog, and includes a link to the blog of Prof. Ram Ramaswamy, Vice Chancellor, University of Hyderabad. I would like to add links to the blogs of Prof. Pankaj Jalote (Director, IIIT-Delhi) and Prof. Dheeraj Sanghi (former Director, LNMIIT, Jaipur, and currently Dean-Academic Affairs at IIT-K).

  3. Librarian shares his opinion on books coming out of an academic publisher, and the publisher sues him for libel. See the coverage at IHE and CHE.

  4. Finally, PHD Comics has a two-minute video on Gino Putrino's PhD thesis research: How to Build an Artificial Nose.
