(even more) Science Blogs Reviewed – the F’s, G’s, and I’s


Framing Science: Assistant Professor of Communications. Tries to examine the way science is presented in the media on behalf of various lobby groups. Stem Cells is the current topic, with careers, mega-dollars, patents, pharmaceutical supremacy, and just all-out glory on the line. Here’s Harvard’s 250 Acre Life Sciences Campus.

Frontal Cortex: editor. Some really cool neuroscience. The stuff reads like straight pop science, and scans easily. The Pentagon and Neuroscience is a guaranteed attention grabber. Has a book due for birth this year.


Gene Expression: no personal info except a bad blue shirt. A bit clever by half.

Good Math, Bad Math: computer scientist. There was pop science, now there’s pop math. Here’s his library card.


Integrity of Science: new blog, representing a think tank. Stated aim is to cut through the political bias surrounding climate change and national security. Probably needs to post a bit more frequently, currently averaging a couple of clips per week. I don’t know how to evaluate “their” bias. What exactly is non-partisan? ie I am right and you are wrong – it just becomes opinion, like this blog.

Intersection: journalist and author. I’ll let his bio page do the talking.

Island of Doubt: freelance writer. Bit wordy. I’m glad someone remembered Carl Sagan’s passing.

Alright! we’re getting up a head of steam now. Onward science soldiers!

    Oh dear, they’re all journalists, correspondants with books and results. I have no chance to get into that circle as a medical student…

    I noticed you linked to me, so I took a look at your blog, and… great job! (And good idea reviewing all these science blogs… it just had to be done). Anyway, just saying hi.

    Hi Gautama, thanks for dropping by. You’ve got a nice site over there – very slick, and some meaty writing. Lots of value.
