Dan has shuttered his own blog, Blue Monster. We hope he continues to post sometimes over here.
He’s uncertain about the status of his archives and so I won’t do a tribute montage of material from past posts. But can I just say: in addition to other delights, he deserves a place in the Soc Blogging Hall of Fame for the most consistently clever ideas for how to integrate a camera phone into blogging.
I still have never actually tried the beverage Blue Monster. I drink way too much Coke Zero than is healthy, but have never had any kind of “energy drink.” I think I’m worried that if I start down that path, given my nature, it’s only a matter of time before I’m wheeling around an IV of the stuff so I can be consuming it continuously.
