Here is an excellent article by Sean Caroll on why we should care about string theory, despite its problems and its occasionally over-zealous supporters. The comments he got (some in favor and some against) are good points as well. It's worth noting that Sean Caroll is not himself a string theorist, so he is perhaps more unbiased than others who have defended string theory on similar grounds. He is the author of one of the most widely used graduate level textbooks on General Relativity today... and an overall very cool guy (I've seen him lecture, and he's very good at getting across things in a simple understandable way) who now keeps not one but two online blogs which I follow.

What else was I going to link to? Oh yes, thanks to sid_icarus for pointing out this hysterical dope new mp3: So Much Drama in the Phd. Well written, and well executed. My favorite line: "DWORD to your moms, I came to drop bombs; I've got more rhymes than San Jose's got dotcoms."

Also, thanks to caulette for
