I've just gotten back from a trip to Brazil, so much as accumulated and this post is essentially a link dump:
1. Playboy article online
. My piece on the spirituality of scientists has been put online. Warning: clicking this link may yield a bit in the way of Playboy-type...visuals.
2. Successful Science Communication.
Cambridge University Press is preparing a new volume on science communication, and I'm one of the contributors with a chapter on "Dealing with the U.S. Media." (Tough, I know.) The book won't be out til September, but you can get a sense of the contents here. Andrew Revkin is also a contributor. 3. Why Johnny Can't Do Science. There was a spectacular two part series on the problems of U.S. science education in the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette by Mark Roth. I strongly encourage you to read both pieces, here and here.
That's all for now....
