by Bora Zivkovic is an excellent, James Burke-ish, essay on science, journalism, and a hopeful future for science journalism.
Included are observations on the parallel evolutions of science and journalism and how the speed of human travel facilitated their divergence, how trust in channels of information are established through the mechanism of casual chit-chat, and how Albert Einstein reacted on learning that his submission for publication had been peer reviewed.
