What could be more timely or relevant than a blog devoted to the "intersections between science, technology, culture and policy?" The Economist has a very good one called Babbage (named after a Victorian mathematician, philosopher, inventor, and engineer), which offers daily news features, videos, and commentary on everything from internet privacy to antibiotics, space exploration, stem cell experiments, and the environment. While U.S. topics are covered, the range and perspective is global. Enjoy. Non-subscribers to The Economist can register to view up to six articles per week.
