The Corporation and the Community

Ran across an interesting story on Slashdot this weekend:, a high-profile and respectable collection of scientific blogs, is in a bit of a kerfuffle after including a paid "nutrition" blog from PepsiCo. In response, some bloggers have left the site, others are on hiatus, and some call the whole thing an overreaction. The PepsiCo blog has since been cancelled with an apology of sorts.
