You may notice that today is the one year anniversary of the Scientific American blog network. You may also notice that across the blogs this morning is a shared theme; time for the readers to speak up. Inspired by the blogger Ed Yong, the Sci Am blogs are asking for your thoughts.
Consider this an opportunity to send your message into the great aether of electrons that now perpetually encircles our modest little planet, not unlike sending it out into the cosmic void itself (remember this post?). It's very easy to register to leave a comment here - if you already use Facebook, Twitter or LinkedIn, or have a Yahoo! or Gmail account it's merely a click away. That's so much easier than finding the Higgs boson...
Perhaps tell Life, Unbounded and its other readers who you are, your background, and what you do. What’s your interest in science and your involvement with it? How did you come to this blog (through Twitter, Facebook, or sheer blind cosmic luck?), how long have you been reading, what do you think about it, and how could it be improved?
Then let those fingers do some more walking - tell someone else about this blog and in particular, try and choose someone who's not a scientist but who you think might be interested in the type of stuff found in this blog. Ever had family members or groups of friends who've been giving you strange, pitying looks when you try to wax scientific on them? Send 'em here and let's see what they say.
Need some nifty Life, Unbounded posts to pass along? Here are some of my favorites:
