Apparently there has been great fuss about “Pepsigate”, which was Pepsi paying to have a blog at Scienceblogs. Or somesuch – I didn’t follow it too closely. If you’re interested, this looks like an attempt at a summary of the fallout.
As for myself, I don’t greatly care. I’ve never really been part of the Great Culture. There were rumours of some terrible event a year ago too, but I can’t remember what that was even about.
