Translucent Science in the Guardian and ICWales

leave a comment »

We’ve been seeing some nice media coverage of Translucent Science over the past few days. Ben Goldacre’s Guardian article on media and blog coverage of Dore references Translucent Science bloggers, and argues that:

I make no sweeping claims about blogs and mainstream media – both have their roles – but in this case it seems the bloggers win on timeliness, accuracy, relevance, effort, ethics, and stupid names.

Secondly, as Podblack notes, the South Wales Echo has reported on our criticisms of Dore:

sceptics such as Translucent Science – a loose association of science bloggers on the internet – have criticised the programme.

Watch this space over the next couple of weeks, for some more interesting stories.
