Status of the Geoblogosphere

Here is a really good analysis on the current status of the geoblogosphere, an initiative of the NOVA geoblog.
Interestingly, the majority of geo bloggers are students, folowed by faculty staff and industry employees. And if you take the numbers on slide 27 and weight bloggers with 'professional background' with against the rest you get a ratio of approx. 1:1!

What does this mean for science communication in the age of web 2.0? At least it shows that not only paleontologists are late adopters ;)

P.S.: A very good compilation of geoblogs can be found at which offers a categorized list of geoblogs.
