There’s lots of Communicating Science in the information age

Since starting the SH804 I have been overwhelmed by the amount of information I am finding and wanting to take in, which I am finding relevant to the course.  The news at the moment is full of the climategate story but on top of that I am throwing myself into anything which I think is relevant to communicating science in an information age.  On the drive to work I am listening to podcasts from Nature, Guardian Science and others, I am watching/reading/listening to scifi from a different perspective (Avatar Movie, EscapePod Podcast, The Black Cloud Book) and I am stocking up on popular science books (Bad Science, The Oxford Book of modern Science Writing).

I hope I don’t get so distracted by these related resources that I lose focus of the course itself, although from what I have seen so far the course seems really interesting.  The point I guess I am trying to make is I never realised how much really good stuff is out there which fits into the category of “Communicating Science in the information age”

  1. I have to stop reading your blog while you’re doing SH804. I guess that’s the only way to control my envy!
