Neal Lane Looks At The Future Of US Science

Neal Lane, former Science Advisor to President Bill Clinton, gets a Q&A on the future of US Science. One of the issues brought up is this:

Q.What can scientists do to make sure the public has a better understanding of science and its role in the modern world?

There is so much now known about the natural world and the engineered world that nobody can know much of it to any depth, including scientists. When people want to know something specific about science, they go to the Internet. I think scientists will need to give a lot more attention to the Internet - how blogs are used, who writes for them and how the public reads them.

So how DOES the public read this blog? :)
