And while you’re doing that, I have answered the Monday Mystery back at my tried and true wordpress blog.
***update and clarification*** I have reached no decision about the future location of Myrmecos blog.
I like some things about Scienceblogs. Their openness in letting bloggers air this sort of dirty laundry out in public is one of them. I dislike other things. The Pepsi blog-buy behind the current kerfuffle is troubling, but ultimately it is small beans, a symptom of a larger corporate undercurrent I’d been watching even before I moved the blog. At the time, I thought I could live with it in exchange for bringing an ant blog to a larger audience. Now that the trend is moving- no, running like mad- the wrong way, I’m not so sure.
I may well be back here in a few days. Or not. Several sciencebloggers- particularly the more journalistic of them- have opted out of the network already. I’d rather take the time to reach a solution I won’t regret. In the meantime, I am more comfortable at the old site.
