tired: Too much culture (evolution-creationism) wars, and politics.
expired: Very poor stem cell research, regenerative medicine, biotechnology, aging biology and life extension coverage.
I think that talking about the latest stem cell bionews and regmed factoids, current issues in aging and life extension possibilities, for instance, is just simply more hardcore science, more relevant concerning our very life and less ideological than repeating the unintelligent evolution-idesign mantra embedded into full politics. It is not a steady evolution for a good scientist to become a mediocre politician. I know that pseudoscience and evolution denial is a big-big problem in the U.S., but let’s try and make things more proportionate. So I wish ScienceBlogs a happy new 2nd year, more science and less politics.
/Update, January 7th, 2007 at 7:34 pm: From an incoming link, Enceladus: “According to a pie chart published in Seed (parent of ScienceBlogs, although they don’t control any of the content on the blogs), the top three channels (common meta-categories universal to the entire network) by number of posts are: chatter, culture wars and policy & politics. Together, they consist 54.1% of all the posts on SB.“/
