I'm an Intellectual Blogger

The Evilutionary Biologist (aka John Dennehy) has tagged me with an Intellectual Blogger Award. Given my serious lack of posting lately, I'm not sure that I deserve it...but thanks!

The award traces to An Unquiet Mind where the stated rules are:
This award is intended for those bloggers who demonstrate an inclination to think on their own. This is what I think is needed in today’s blogosphere. The term ‘Intellectual’ has often been derided in recent times, and this is one way to resurrect the true meaning: “An intellectual is one who tries to use his or her intellect to work, study, reflect, speculate on, or ask and answer questions with regard to a variety of different ideas.” The rules are:

1. If, and only if, you get tagged, write a post with nominations for 5 blogs that you think are of “Intellectual Bloggers”.
2. Optional: Link to this page so that people can easily find the exact origin of the meme.
3. Optional: Proudly display the ‘Intellectual Blogger Award’ with a link to the post that you wrote.
I hereby nominate:
  1. Tree of Life (Jonathan Eisen; even though he doesn't like these memes)
  2. Aetiology (Tara Smith)
  3. Twisted Bacteria (Cesar Sanchez)
  4. Small Things Considered (Elio)
  5. Evolgen (RPM)
and one that I was suprised to find has apparently not yet been included:


  1. Given my serious lack of posting lately, I'm not sure that I deserve it...

    Summer is over, eh?

    I was going to mention Larry, but I mention him for something like every other damn post :)

  2. Oops, sorry I didn't notice your post, haven't been very active on the internet lately. Thanks for the nomination, John!

  3. This comment has been removed by a blog administrator.

  4. You indeed look like one of those inttellectual types...if you don't mind me saying.
