science blogs Wednesday, 22 February 2006 12:45 pmPosted by Dongmei in blogs and blogging, science related news.
while preparing my Thursday @ 3 workshop “Blogging 101“, I came across “more about science blogs” by Richard Akerman, a technology architect and information security officer at NRC CISTI, on his Science Library Pad. Although it’s posted Aug. of last year, it’s still a interesting read.
Then, there were “more than nine million blogs, with another one created every 7.4 seconds”, it will be interesting to see how many blogs are there now. Then, he quoted the Scientist’s article on science blogging, “science blogs run by scientists and industry insiders are just getting started … This whole thing is still very immature … This may be due to scientists’ caution about retribution, unfamiliarity with the technology, or not grasping the potential impact yet … ” It will be interesting to take a close look at the blogging scenario in the sciences now.
