It really irritated me when the USGS created a website called Sciencebase.gov. My site, the original Sciencebase.com, has existed since July 1999. All my social media hangs on that word “sciencebase”, I’ve used it everywhere! It alludes to the foundations of science and information. Anyway, now, when I search on Youtube to quickly find a video of mine, I get some BS marketing about six packs called Science-Based Six Pack. Well, you know what they can go and take a long walk off the same short pier with USGS!
Oh, and yes back in 1999 I probably could’ve even laid claim to having a bit of a six pack myself, hahaha.
