This is interesting: eight large universities in Australia have bypassed traditional media and are taking the message about new scientific discoveries directly to the people. " The Conversation, a website barely three months old, provides timely reports on issues of the day, written by the researchers themselves and directed at the Australian public." Now about 1,000 researchers from 39 universities have been contributing to the service. As it's near the end of the day I can't explore it thoroughly, but even after a quick look I'm already gushing all over it. This is what the internet promised. Now why can't we set up something like this in Canada? Bueller...? Bueller...?
