My Sunday afternoon recover-from-jetlag hack was creating phygg. Phygg is designed to help sort through physics papers and discussion topics related to arXiv.org in the style of digg.com, initially focusing on astrophysics.
I’m using phygg to track papers I find interesting, so feel free to follow the rss feed. In addition, I’m convincing a few of my astrophysicist colleagues and readers to join in on the posting and voting, so sign up if you fall into that category and get started.
In other news, as of yesterday I’m back in Zürich returning from an adventurous summer in startup land to work on my PhD fulltime. This semester, I’m a teaching assistant for Mathematical Methods in Physics and locking myself in my apartment/office to try to get enough done research-wise to make up for taking the summer “off”.
