So I'm building a new collection of science related links, and I was wondering if the folks here at EtU could help me find some really good ones. I've got the major magazines (Sci Am, New Scientist, Discover, American Scientist) down, but I can't remember the names of all those obscure magazines, eccentric web sites, and wonderful news filter pages that are full of the good stuff, and I've completely forgotten the addresses of all those cool message boards where people debate Bell's Theorem and other equally abstruse esoterica. So do you have any good links? If it's science related, I'd love to hear about it.
Here's the list so far:
Magazines and Media:
The Atlantic/Science & Technology Section
Slashdot's Science Section
New York Times science section
BBC News Science/Nature
MIT Open Courseware
MIT Media Lab
National Science Foundation
Jet Propulsion Laboratory
National Space Society
