Sustainablog Review

I was surprised to see all of the postings were by Jeff McIntire-Strasburg, is this his own blog, and basically people just comment, or is it open to the public? In just one day, he posted at 7:13 am, then 7:48 am, 10:45am, and 1:22pm, and there are a lot of posts (very long posts, in some cases) every day, with many links as well. He has sure sustained his sustainablog, but it was suprising not to see more comments.

    I think it’s a problem of science blogs. They’re not as exciting as politics or high school dramas, which characterize many of the existing blogs.

    It might be because the barrier to making an informed comment can become pretty high for science blogs. It seems like a large number graduate classes involve reading through scientific papers, and then trying to figure out what’s going on. That’s a lot to ask for a casual visitor to a website.
