Back to the future (of science)

To follow up on my earlier Future of science post, I found a couple more articles on science, one looking forward and one back. The first article is entitled “Cracking Open the Scientific Process” by Thomas Lin over at the New York Times. It talks about the current role of the web and it’s affect on scientific research. It does seem to be where it’s headed.

The second article looks back at an institution that has played an important role in science, having first been founded back in 1660 and located across the pond, the Royal Society. Like those within the scientific research community, it’s attempting to stay relevant. The article is entitled “A Redoubt of Learning Holds Firm” by Michael Powell, also at the New York Times.

Happy Friday!
