In Defense Of Science Blogging

Jason G. Goldman, a science blogger out of USC, posts a thoughtful defense of the emerging role of science blogging. His major points seem to be:

  1. Science journalism sucks (okay, "sucks" is my word), so science blogging is a potential, and superior replacement
  2. Blogging is a form of public intellectualism
  3. There are real professional development opportunities
