Louis's very informative new thread got me thinking. We've got over a hundred people here with science degrees who like to chat about scientific and technical topics. I've never had a blog because I have an interesting thing to say once in a blue moon. Others of you might be in the same boat. But maybe the answer is a large number of contributors? What do you guys think about doing a group blog? Maybe, say, most of the people with over 500 posts here would be invited to join the blog, and it would be hosted at Antievolution.org? Anybody interested in that?

Could you elaborate on what this would consist of?

Not really. I've basically told you everything I know. Maybe a group blog, where the top dozen or so AtBC commenters are given authority to write blog articles on a blog at Antievolution.org. I want to hear ideas from you people about it.

Sounds like a good idea.

The number of posts thing isn't strict. but, you know, most of the committed regulars who were interested would be invited.

I don't have 500 posts (not even close), but I do have a science degree, and I am interested.

And lots of folks think I should be committed :)

Yeah, that's why I said it wasn't strict. You'd be invited. I would want a dozen or so people who are interested in writing more complex posts than the usual throwaway comments here. And I think there are a lot of people here with the occasional thing to say. There are complexities involved, but I'm just wondering at the moment if enough people are interested.

Did any here ever read a group blog called Panda's Thumb?

It started out with the idea (which apparently I had) that with all these smart people hanging around planning to create a website (TalkDesign) we could start a blog.

PT did boom for a while, unfortunately at the cost of the TalkDesign project.  PT was arguably the better means to communicate the bogousity of IDC than another static website ala TalkOrigins which we had patterned the TalkDesign project on.  About the time I was going to suggest adding links and advertising, the Mirecki attack blew up, and there were several PT posters that were seduced by the $$ tit offered by Seed Magazine.  

What have we learned?

I for one, would be glad to pay homage to the new ATBC Overlords.  I am not qualified to blog, but I like to read, and I think that as a group the people here are funnier and less stuffy than Panda People.  

Would you still be able to beat up, and make fun of DaveScot and the UD Idiots, ot would that be THE stated blog goal?

I think defining an AtBC's blog mission (as it were) separate or distinct from that of PT would be a good idea. As Dr GH mentions PT is suffering/has suffered from some issues, bear this in mind when group blogs rear their heads!

That aside, I'm in favour of contributing to a group blog with a given mission. Maybe not right away, but it's something I've been considering for a long old while. (I have thought about getting my own blog, but the blogosphere is already crammed with crap and I'm not sure I could offer anything new or useful)

DO you mean a group blog devoted to science in general?  
Would this include history of science, or more strictly "stuff that people know now and how they learnt it"?

I assume it would also be open to much more than biology.  I have my own livejournal which I have mentioned before.  One or two of it's posts could be polished, increased in length and might suit a group blog on the general topic of science and its history.

(At the moment I am interested in the history of science and metallurgy in the past 1,000 years.  I find it fascinating how we have narrowed down the scientific method and what is expected of it over the past 400 years or so, not to mention the tricky area of how science can become socially normative.  Also the formation of science from the 1100's to 1500's, when there were two strands of thought on primitive science, the more philosophical one and the technological one practised by ordinary craftsmen, whose knowledge was then partially appropriated in the 17th century.)

What have we learned?

I still read it.  It's still pretty good, but after Dover things seem to have gotten a bit more boring.  

So what we have learnt is, don't stray too much onto politics.

Well, after Dover, PT's primary mission -- fighting creationism/ID -- became mostly a non-issue, and PT's decline was then inevitable.  The only thing left to do with ID/creationism is to laugh at it, which is why ATBC isn't dead.

My opinion about ATBC is that it's doing fine as it is -- anyone who wants to can start a topic on anything they want to.  I don't really see any pressing need to change anything.


-added in edit--     A few months ago, I floated the idea of changing my DebunkCreation email list, which is the largest creation/evolution list at Yahoogroups with almost 1000 members, into a group blog format.  We decided to keep both the list and the blog for a while and see what happened.  Well, the blog flopped, miserably.  The Debunk list is very close-knit -- many of us have been cyber-friends for many years now -- and overwhelmingly, everyone preferred the email format to the blog format.

Maybe I could moderate? I'd make outrageous claims about science with no support and then when real scientists post rebuttals, I wouldn't let the posts through and ban them on the sly.

I just violated the rule of thumb typing that, as only intelligent agents can.

Well, my only "science" degree is a 35 year old one in anthropology, though it did include a "concentration" in the cultural behavior of non-human primates, which does bear on evo/devo/creo matters to some limited extent.

And my only "advanced" degree is, ahem, law.  But that's an area that also gets drug in by the cat (if only to be roundly abused by the likes of Larry Farfaroutman...).

And I have no idea how many posts I have, since I've been wasting more of my time recently laughing at afdave over at dawkins.net.

But, sure, what the hell.  Blogging beats working, any day...!

That I didn't make the cut-off doesn't change my mind.

But probably does spare the potential readership the bother of having to filter any "scientific" posts by moi.

with all sincerity, would I be able to contribute?  I know I don't tow the party line here but I find the idea very interesting.  I've often thought of starting my own blog but I couldn't maintain enough content to make it worthwhile but as one of many contributors that would take care of itself.  I would even recommend, rather than a moderator, something akin to an editor.  Contributions could be submitted and evaluated just on a basic level of acceptability, in other words, strictly science and then the comments could discuss the actual content.  Nothing really heavy-handed, mind you, just enough oversight to keep this from getting into a flame fight.  That should preserve the focus and purpose of the blog.

Listen to me, acting like I'd actually be involved, lol.  But, yes, I would definitely read it.  That's my vote.

Start posting like crazy. You have one week. Thirty posts a day should do it.  :p

I'm not getting much feedback from people supporting the blog idea. So I think for now we should table the motion. In the meantime, I encourage people to write up sciency essays and post them as threads here.

EDITED TO ADD: Particularly if you're in the social sciences, which these days I find more interesting than the physical sciences.

I don't have 500 posts (not even close), but I do have a science degree, and I am interested.

And lots of folks think I should be committed :)

I have 453 posts (well, 454 with this one).  If I post another 46, can I get a science degree?  

I'm wondering what the purpose of such a blog would be, rhetorically speaking.  To keep tabs on, and counter, the anti-evolution movement with a more public rhetorical posture than we have here?

I vote that unlike me, Amadan gets in based on quality, not quantity.

What?  You mean to be a big time editor/contributor to this planned science blog you have to be a scientist?  Oh man that sucks.  That's what's wrong with science these days, you have to know what you're talking about to get in with the hip crowd.  It's so unfair.  

That's what's so cool about Intelligent Design Creationism - you can be the county dog catcher, a high school drop-out who never took a single science class and still moonlight as a leading ID theorist and enjoy all the prestige that goes with it.  I mean Sal and BarryA are not that far behind Behe and Dembski in terms of their IDC "leadership"

You sciency guys seck!  I wouldn't write anything for your damn, dirty science blog even if you begged me!

I guess I'll create yet another troll account at UD and get Dembski to to suck my toes again as I pass myself off as an ID theorist.

Damn you all to hell!

Do you need to do actual research or can my qualifications be played up a bit?

I'm wondering what the purpose of such a blog would be, rhetorically speaking.  To keep tabs on, and counter, the anti-evolution movement with a more public rhetorical posture than we have here?

The idea was going to be, a dozen or so people here who are research types could blog about science topics without the pressure of maintaining a blog singlehandedly. And it would have been a general science blog, whereas this place is for the more limited purpose of tearing creationist nonsense apart.

But there wasn't much interest, which worked out for me, because I'm so exhausted and overextended these days that I can't even keep up with my beloved Uncommonly Dense thread. It would have just been another project I started and then couldn't maintain. There have been many over the last few years, unfortunately.

Yeah!  Like That Perfect Woman Project that you started... and wound up with the Housewife From Hell or Kansas, or something like that...
