Just so you all are aware that, starting now at least, the bayblab should include the "blogging on peer reviewed research" icon. It's actually a great idea, that I first ran across at sandwalk. The site where this idea is based out of http://bpr3.org/. Check it out for the concept and guidelines for its intented use. Basically this can aggregate blog posts about original research articles. The aggregation system isn't quite up yet as I understand it. However you can use technorati to check out the newest blog posts that use the icon here(I will be checking out this link regularly). To me this is a great idea and I hope it gets implemented by good science blogs, so that means us. Here's hoping that some spamming moron doesn't abuse it somehow.
