So who the heck is still on ScienceBlogs anyways, 2011 edition

What with the latest round of departures seemingly immanent with the new "no pseudonymous bloggers" policy, I thought I'd revisit the list I did last year at about this time.

With a few exceptions, I'll call blogs dormant if there hasn't been a post in 2011.

There were three new blogs over the last year, We, Beasties, Art of Science Learning and Dean's Corner, which I've added.

I may have missed a couple of other cases of pseudonymous blogging or maybe a move or something, so please feel free to offer corrections in the comments.

A little over 4 years ago, I joined up with three friends from grad school and launched a brand new science blog, "We, Beasties!" The name was meant to be a play on a phrase from Paul de Kruif's somewhat tongue-in-cheak translation of the first-ever microbiologist Antonie von Leeuwenhoek's term "…
The new site went live sometime late last night, and our technical help slaved away to try and get everything working, if not beautiful. Check out Freethoughtblogs some time today, and say what you think. I've created a thread to collect suggestions and criticisms as we shake out the bugs, fine-…
This is an experiment. To reduce complexity in my own life and enhance the quality of communication between me and you, I'm going to try this "newsletter" thingie. It will probably be weekly, roughly timed for the middle of the week, and will include links to the blog posts I personally wish that…
In early October two years ago, we had a party. During that evening, a journalist friend helped my wife set up a (pseudonymous, s3kr1t) blog on Blogspot which persists to this day. I didn't catch on immediately. I'd been a BBS aficionado since the late 80s, regularly spending an hour or two a day…

"A vote for science" was an election cycle thing. I suppose we could bring it back. Maybe "cyclic/seasonal" is a better tag for that one.

I had never heard of that Sciencblogs HQ thing. It seems to have ever had only one post.

Maybe I shoudl do it myself instead of griping, but a list of who is not on sciblogs anymore and where they are would be better. It would help drive traffic to the people who have left.

No, such leave-takings, as a matter of going beyond rather than within, must be considered otherwise: but as some are highly visible, we might describe them as eminently transcendent...

Hi Ed, there are some resources for figuring out some SB expats, like Carl Zimmer's post here, the epats RSS feed here, an SB expats twitter feed and even a diagram! I'm not sure if any of them are completely up to date, but they're a start.
