A Blog Around The Clock

If you are a regular reader of this blog, you may have seen this, this and this, i.e., an effort to design an icon that a blogger can place on the top of a post that discusses peer-reviewed research. The icon makes such posts stand out, i.e., the readers will know it is not a discussion of a press release or media reporting, or fisking of a crackpot, a meme, or showing a cute animal picture.

So, I am please to announce that the icons are here! Dave Munger explains.

Pick up the codes for icons on this page. Carefully read the Guidelines before you start using the icon.

See who is using the icon already, by visiting this page so you can see the examples.

The blog-posts that use the icon will be aggregated in the nearest future on the BPR3 blog. So, get started today!

I went back last night and added the icon to a number of appropriate posts of mine – I have linked to them again under the fold. You can see that I actually sometimes write (or at least used to) about REAL science!

    As a manager of an online community, do you have any insight into why the BPR3 people seem to be ignoring the existing systems for aggregation such as Technorati and Scintilla?

    It seems like one could accomplish exactly what they’re attempting simply by including a “BPR3″ tag in your post for pickup by those services.

    All of those will automatically get aggregated by Technorati, Scintilla, Google Blogsearch, Postgenomic, etc., where one needs to search for them specifically, perhaps by tag. On PBR3 they are all there, already aggregated, with all other posts eliminated from the crowd.
