Post Full of Semi-Random Links

Perusing Google Reader tonight, and here are some items of note:

Absinthe seems to be in a bad way, at least as regards blogging and the blogosphere. Doesn’t seem to be much we can do to cheer her or change her mind, as she promises to delete all comments from her blog post. It’s a shame to see her dismantling so much of her blog.

There’s an interesting post at Fairer Science on Five Myths about Girls and Science, with a link to a story on the NSF website. Check it out.

Female Science Professor’s life never ceases to amaze. Read the tale of her second encounter with the moron who couldn’t believe a female was responsible for the research published under her name.

Joolya’s miniprep song is just too wonderful!

And there’s a new Postdoc Carnival up at Veo Claramente’s place.

    “It’s a shame to see her dismantling so much of her blog.”

    It is indeed.

    I also consider it a slap in the face of her readers. Readers invest time and effort in a blog, reading and/or commenting, and a blog thus becomes a collaborative effort between a blogger and her readers. Absinthe’s decision has the effect of telling her collaborators to fuck off.

    This is certainly her right, and I don’t begrudge her exercise of it. But when someone tells me to fuck off, I fuck off. I won’t be returning to her blog.
