I have been following, somewhat closely, the whole Pepsiblogate or Pepsipocalipse thing at ScienceBlogs, the massive departure of SciBlings and what seems to be their eventual re-emergence now at Scientopia.
I would say that the bulk of activity throughout July was focused on who leaves or doesn't and who goes where and how ScienceBlogs have failed and whathaveyou.
Which is all nice, except that I so don't care. I tried to, I really did, but I can't. I do not give a rat's ass about who goes where.
I think I am officially exhausted by following science blogs.
In my humble opinion, most science bloggers take themselves way too seriously (I am sure I do too). Come to think of it, most scientists take themselves too seriously (I am absolutely guilty of this one).
This is not real life. Just the darn blogosphere. Nothing happens if we don't blog. If all science bloggers everywhere stopped blogging this instant, nothing would happen. It's almost amusing how inconsequential all this is, yet how important it seems to people.
I said almost amusing. It's really not. Yawn.
Moving a blog, renaming a blog, or ceasing to blog are not earthshattering events. Quite the contrary. Life goes on. Except that it perhaps becomes a tiny bit better every time an egotistical smartass goes offline.
To put my money where my mouth is and make the world a better place, this is my last post. Comment at will, and in a couple of days I will pull down the whole blog. Thanks for reading. See you among comments on other people's blogs.
