Huffington Post blogger David Sloan Wilson wonders why the Huffington Post has no section for "Science".
I am reminded of this cover every time I visit the Huffington Post and see the words "Politics," "Media," "Business," "Entertainment," and "Living" on the top banner. These comprise the Huffington Post's view of the world. Where, I would like to know, is "Science?"
Whether one is a daily, infrequent or never-ever reader of the HuffPo site, if you are interested in science outreach, the interaction of science with the public which funds it, a particular public policy issue which relates to science or benefits from science....you may want to go and comment.
It isn't as though HuffPo doesn't interest itself in science stories. For grins I quickly found some HuffPo action on:
- Heath Ledger's overdose (Maia Szalavitz is singing my song)
- Drug legalization (Chris Weigant on Presidential debate questions, Maia Szalavitz, Matt Simon)
