After some requests and a few months of “oh yes, I’ll get around to that”, we have created a Twitter account for you to follow if that is your method of choice for keeping your news, blogs, etc organized.
We are located at: http://twitter.com/scienceadvocacy
Just to enrich the post a little more, I think it’s worth sharing the following article written by Nobel laureate Ahmed Zawali who currently sits on Barack Obama’s Council of Advisors on Science and Technology:
On a recent official visit to southeast Asia, a prime minister asked me: “What does it take to get a Nobel prize?” I answered immediately: “Invest in basic research and recruit the best minds.” This curiosity-driven approach seems increasingly old-fashioned and underappreciated in our modern age of science.
I think this is definitely worth the full read and is something we’ll certainly be commenting on at the Black Hole in the future.
As for the twitter feed – we’ll try to keep people posted on other interesting reports, articles, etc a little more quickly than we can generate content here on our own.
