Pharyngula mentions that The Politburo Diktat is trying to trace blog lineages - who inspired who to start blogging. Here are the questions to answer - leave a comment at his place:
1) Blogfather or Blogmother (Just one): Pharyngula - I had been a lurker and PZ made explaining biology concepts look sooo easy, I decided I could do it to. To my intense shock, it's not as easy as he made it look!
2)Blog Birth Month: 10/2/04 4:50 AM.
3)Blog Spawn (have you inspired anyone to start blogging?): Alas, no! I would never, I'm not that kind of hominid! Well, okay, not to my knowledge - but if I have inspired you to start blogging let me know.
