The Silence of the Blogs

In the great aftermath of Pepsi-gate, bloggers over at Scienceblogs have been jumping ship left and right, apparently on the high of some great majestic martyr complex. So much for working on issues. Now, Scienceblogs behemoth Pharyngula has gone on strike. But, at least PZ is being specific on what he thinks needs to change, and making a list of 5 conditions that he believes need to change. In essence, it could be condensed to 1. Better Communication.

With science journalism in the state that it is today, this silence from SB is quite deafening. We nerds rely upon the spare time of the academic blog world to get the real poop on anything.

On the bright side, maybe PZ will get some work done on his damn book.
