is a confederation of, as it says on the tin, blogs about science. They host such sites as Pharyngula
, Good Math, Bad Math
, and The Primate Diaries
, among many others. Now they host Food Frontiers
, a blog about nutrition -- written by PepsiCo.
Many folks there are not happy
Overreaction to a single site with, at the moment, only one actual post? Or legitimate concern over scientific ethics? Why not have a refreshing ice-cold beverage
while you ponder it?

It has won recognition as "Best Interactive Viral" in the Viral Awards
. With all the viral1
marketing campaigns, comment spam, astroturfing3
, and other tools that marketeers are using to infiltrate the Brave New(ish) World of blog, we sometimes forget that we also have the power to do good, so "you know, like, reclaim the streets, or re-frame the conversation, or some damn thing
". Words of wisdom from our not-so-subservient chicken. [and, a bit more...]

AOL to offer blogging services. Ninety-nine per cent of bloggers won't make money," says Copeland."But when we've got 10 million bloggers a couple years from now, I'm confident that 100,000 of them will be uniquely valuable to advertisers."

Kottke.org, now with x10 ads.
Sad, but true. I don't like them, but I suppose if you need the money... Look in the source for confirmation:
var url = "http://ads.x10.com/bluefish/bf23.htm";
var domain = "kottke.org";
at least the girl in the camera ad is kinda cute.

Jorn tries pay for play.
Seeking to sell links near the top of his extremely-widely-read weblog Robot Wisdom, Jorn Barger has set an (experimental) $20 submission
fee: you don't get considered if you don't pay, but if he approves of your site you get a link. (Actually, it's even more complicated than that, which is characteristic of the man.) There's even a $100 fee for certain commercial links. Jorn can do what he likes, of course, but how well do you think this might work?

How's this for viral marketing?
In order to promote their weblog feature, Xanga.com
created a weblogger. Last week, many Geocities users received the same message (included inside) from "Bianca Broussard"
, in which she says, "I was noticing your writing style, and I think the weblog format might really work well for you."
They actually created a fictional person and gave her a blog with over a month of entries. Pretty sneaky...

Jorn Barger is calling his potential $1,000/yr banner ads/messages an "Experiment." I guess a guy who lives like a monk in West Rogers Park
can't bring himself to admit he's doing business not experiments. Nice blog though, except for his rabid fascination with people living in front of webcams, its not art its voyeurism.
