One year ago today the current incarnation of evolgen at ScienceBlogs was launched. A lot has happened in that year — we junked DNA; we became terrified of manatees; we were voted the sexiest blog in all of scibloggistan by Nature; we were awarded the Nobel prizes for Physiology or Medicine, Peace, and Literature; we cured cancer — but most notably, we changed banners. A lot. So, in honor of a full year without pissing on the floor (which is more than some folks can say) we’re unveiling a new banner. Our last banner. The best banner of all time. This banner will be up until the internet tubes gain enough intelligence to overthrow us humans turning us into a race of meat puppets. Or until I get bored and change banners again in a few
months weeks days hours . . . maybe later tonight.
You’ll notice the new name: “coalesced”. We’re still trying to figure out if we like it or not. For now, we’re still “evolgen”, although our fickle sense of self-identity may lead us down a path of Prince-esque name changing (for the younguns out there — well, I doubt there are that many people younger than me who frequent this hell hole — Prince was
Puff Daddy P Diddy Diddy Douchemaster McDoucherson way before Sean Combs went from Helly Hansen to many mansions . . . even recording his own music rather than sampling the hooks from old Police songs).
A record of all the previous evolgen banners (at least those I could track down) can be found below the fold.
