I just discovered PhDweblogs.net, a site that lists weblogs written by PhD students from all over the world. There are a lot of blogs in the categories of language/culture and history/archaeology that I didn’t know (such as Blogademia, a blog on the academic study of blogs, or the blog of Glen Fuller, who writes a thesis on modified car-culture).
My other toy for the weekend is the Oxford English Dictionary Online — I just treated myself to a three-months individual subscription. We have the OED in the university library of course, but this is something else. I can now log in from the comfort of my living room, bedroom, or anywhere else I take my little laptop, checking on phrases such as “freatyng furies” or “chambering knights.”
