The Sciences

A pause for thought.

If you haven't heard, ScienceBlogs HQ has put its foot squarely in its jaw thanks to a little poor decision-making. Now, Eruptions is a little outside the mainstream of ScienceBlogs - there aren't many corporations that might influence my posting (unless you suddenly see "Eruptions - brought to you by RyanAir" the next time an Icelandic volcano erupts), so I would hope that the credibility of this blog is hopefully not too threatening by the PepsiBlog, but I feel for my other ScienceBloggers who may be adversely effected for various reasons. In solidarity with them, Eruptions will be quiet for a while as SB's Powers-That-Be (hopefully) address this dilemma. Stay tuned ... (and hopefully nothing blows its top in the interim).

Now, if you feel strongly about this problem, please do not hesitate to email Seed Media (editorial@scienceblogs.com) and voice your opinion. It is a very fine line that keeps bloggers credible in this media age, so we need to be vigilant to protect it.
