Thanks, Donat:

Typical of EO Wilson today.

Notice how Wilson claims that he and Peter Alden "created the FIRST BioBlitz at Walden Pond in Connecticut on July 4, 1998 ..."

Two errors: The first BioBlitz was done in Washington DC on 31 May 1996 and Walden Pond is in Massachusetts.

At least he does not claim create for the Encyclopedia of Life, which arose from the ALL SPECIES foundation.

Oh, well ...
