Today is Lurker Day, as explained by Chris at Creek Running North, Lauren at Feministe, and PZ at Pharyngula. (Three of the coolest blogs on all the internets, I should add.) That is, lazy bloggers avoid posting original content by asking their readers who never (or rarely) comment to drop by and leave a note saying who they are and what they like about the blog. (Other blogs also ask for something called "constructive criticism," or perhaps even for suggestions for improvement; we here at CV see no need for such things. But if you are so moved, knock yourselves out.) I'm especially curious as to two demographic questions: how many readers are professionally science-related in some way vs. how many are from the so-called "real world," and among the former, how many are students vs. embittered elders. No pressure, obviously; consider this just a chance to pipe up and say hi if you haven't yet had the chance to comment.
