Some ScienceBlogs Incest

We all know that the blogosphere is the most incestuous place outside of Arkansas, so why fight it? In that spirit, here’s a post that contributes no new information to the web.

Luckily, though, some people are actually expanding our body of knowledge. For example, Jake Young of Pure Pedantry, one of the other grad students on ScienceBlogs, apparently pulled an all-nighter in the lab last night and in the process posted something in all ten categories on the ScienceBlogs homepage. He starts things off here, and then goes on to write about everything from open access journals to membrane lipid rafts. Of course, when I’m in the lab I usually try to at least… ah hem… look like I’m working, but we won’t hold it against him.
