The Fly Buzz Continues

The Fly Spontaneous Behavior paper is generating quite a lot of buzz.
Bjorn has collected some of the best blogospheric responses, including these from Mark Chu-Carroll, Mark Hoofnagle and Kate.
He also got Slashdotted – of course, whoever posted that on Slashdot failed to a) link to the paper, b) link to the press release and c) link to Bjorn’s blog. Instead, a little blurb from one of the worst media articles from MSNBC is the only link. Those got linked later in the comments, so I hope Bjorn enjoys the traffic (it will go away tomorrow never to come back again).
Bjorn has also posted two good posts about the scientific and popular aspects of the paper that can clear stuff up.

  1. Quite as you expected, traffic went down to the usual single reader (myself) as quickly as it rose. Thanks for your great coverage of our work and your role in directing attention to it. It’s been a very exhausting couple of days and I’m rather glad that I can go back to regular experiments now 🙂
    Thanks again,
    Bjoern

  2. Thank you. And keep blogging and the traffic will grow – slowly and organically, and the readers will be of high quality. There are now many lurkers after this with your RSS in their feeds…
