The New Way to Share Science with the Public

Scan through your local newspaper or favorite news magazine. Notice anything missing? Perhaps its the science section. Over the years, the science section of periodicals has been shrinking. In some major cities with large paper circulations, the staff science writer(s) have been eliminated. There are fewer and fewer science journalists today, than say 25 years ago. But sharing science with the public is still a public service. So with the expanding use, popularity, and dependence, the internet is become a great place for people to receive the science news. With that in mind, I had to link to this article Framing Science An Early Look at the Future of Science Journalism. Also check out the comments. They are worth a read.
