BLOGS are not normally important enough to make the news. But when they are by physicists hunting for the Higgs boson, the most sought-after particle in physics, they get noticed. Physicist Tommaso Dorigo blogged first, noting a “bump” – a seeming excess of some unknown particle at a certain mass – seen by the CDF experiment at the Tevatron collider in Batavia, Illinois. The 160-gigaelectronvolt bump was close to where a Higgs could be, according to a theory known as the minimal supersymmetric model. Dorigo waved it away as an aberration. So did the second blogger, physicist John Conway,
