I am a hard bloggin' scientist. Read the Manifesto.

Take a look at a group of German scientist-bloggers who have written a manifesto about Hardbloggingscientists.de which describes itself as “Tools and Toys for real scientists!”  Following is an excerpt from their “About” page:

This blog was created in February 2006, in the context of the German Research Center for Artificial Intelligence (DFKI). This blog is now working for gadgets, toys and tools for teaching and research. It is aimed at professionals, but also explicitly to non-academics, young people and adults.



I especially enjoyed reading their Manifesto VO.1:

Darn it! I wanted to add this badge to my blog… but I am not a “real” scientist, only a Library Scientist!

P.S. A translation page may help if you don’t read German – try http://translate.google.com/

    Library science is definitely not a real science…..

    Thanks for your comment. I do think of our profession as “informationists”… but still not “scientists”.

    Hi. I just found your site, thanks for mentioning our little, charming HBS-blog. Why is a libary scientist not a real scientist? From my/our point of view, everybody is able to call him/herself scientist, that act and work like a real researcher. So go for it! 😉
