Why Seed is not Anglocentric

Here at Seed we take pride in at least pretending to not be English-centric. I mean yours-truly is actually horrible at languages. There was an abortive attempt to learn Mandarin in my past that culminated in me only knowing when my co-workers were making fun of me but not exactly what they were saying. However, the other people at Seed are much more erudite. They are at least trying to spread the message of scientific love in a multi-linguistic manner.

To this end, Seed has just launched ScienceBlogs.de, which I am sure is sweet even though I have no idea what they are talking about. Look at all the other things that are awesome about Germany: beer, bratwurst, Heidi Klum. You know it has to be awesome!

Anyway, we are quite curious to see what other languages our readers would like to read, so if you wouldn't mind please participate in our readers poll on the subject.
