Writing about physics

One more exam done with, and it only sucked a little bit. Just one more to go (friday) and then I'm done for the year. Huzzah. And I realised on the bus home that when that's done I'm actually half way through my degree. Scary.

I've also been pondering more stuff that I can do over the summer to stop myself from spiralling ito boredom and apathy, and one of the thoughts that I had was "write more LJ", which was immediately followed by the counter-thought "what about?" One thing I pondered was the idea of writing a series of "physics for laymen" type entries. This sounds like it could possibly be fun and interesting to do, but only if anyone would actually be interested in reading them.

So, who here would actually read if I did something like that? Which bits would you would you be more interested in? The esoteric (relativity, quantum mechanics, etc.) or the familiar (classical mechanics, electromagnetism, thermodynamics, etc.)? Would you care about the historical context and the people involved, or just in the science? How much maths should I include? And so on and so forth.

Essentially, I want to tell me whether the idea sucks, whether you'd actually read any of it, and any other thoughts you have.
