Who'd have thought that the blogosphere has an irreducibly complex metabolism?

Check out the metabolism of the science blogosphere over at Moment of Science. Brilliant stuff.

I can just see the analogies pouring out of the Discovery Institute now. "You see, metabolism is like the blogosphere and the blogosphere is the product of intelligence". Or even Michael Behe claiming that enzymes are "quite literally, little molecular blogs".

I particularly liked "Behe Bloviase", which links to the Wikipedia article on putrescine, "an organic chemical compound NH2(CH2)4NH2 (1,4-diaminobutane or butanediamine) formed by and having the smell of rotting flesh."
