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.

Media coverage of Dore closures: UPDATED

leave a comment »

After our 27/5/08 press release about Dore closures, there has been a significant amount of media coverage of the story. We will list what we have seen below, and add to this list as new articles come out or as we are reminded of ones we missed.

ABC have an online piece on Parkes Shire Council, and how much it may have lost with Dore going into administration.

The Sun, Times, Guardian and Independent all covered this story, as did ABC’s Life Matters (a popular national Australian radio show). You can find discussion of this coverage on the HolfordWatch and Podblack blogs.

BBCi also has a piece on the closures.

The Guardian had an article covering part of the story.
