I saw an interesting idea which is that PhD students should cite blogs, while I have no problem with the idea of people referencing to interesting sources (I cited a man working in an american state government who has responsibility for keeping the air clean) but there is a great need to be careful to understand that not all sources are born equal. Some are more trustworthy than others.
While I like to think that this blog is unbiased and that I only offer an expert opinion on things which I know about. I have to warn my reader that not all blogs are unbiased and a lot of spout off on things which they either do not understand or have no knowledge of.
I am tempted to give some examples but because I do not have the time or energy for dealing with the angry people (or some half baked nonsense court case which it might provoke) I will not be naming names right now. If I did then I would then have less time to blog for my readers. I do not blog every day because when I have an interesting story I like to check it out and find out how reasonable it is. Sadly as a result of my care in blogging some posts never see the light of day, but I hope that I do make some of you happy (and maybe even educate a few people).
