Article in the NewAScientist: Science in the media: Put up or shut up

Science in the media: Put up or shut up25 April 2009 by Kathy SykesMagazine issue 2705. Subscribe....For similar stories, visit the Comment and Analysis Topic GuideMOST scientists want to see more science and technology in the media, but we're making life hard for ourselves by forever criticizing each other's efforts or denouncing journalists and film-makers for not portraying science in ways we approve of. While healthy debate can improve science communication, I think we could all shut up a bit, and stop the more rabid criticism altogether. I include myself here....If you're still troubled by how others communicate, why not spend less time ranting and get out there and communicate in ways you do like? Blogging is easier than ever, for example. Or if you prefer a more hands-on approach, in the UK or Europe you could enter NESTA FameLab's "Talking Science" competition ( Alternatively, your nearest science centre, science festival or local media will welcome offers of help.ARTICLE Link: The NewScientist

Photography Contest

I just submitted an instructable for the Photography Contest and it was not accepted and I'm not sure why? It explained how I used Photography in my art? The Instructable is called LEAF PRINTS, Perhaps it is because I explained the process as beginning with mono PRINTS instead of Photo PRINTS? I thought I explained how I discovered creating the photographs? Help me understand! Best, Susan Cirigliano

3 year old explains Star Wars in 90 seconds

This is just too cute. The video is of a 3 year old little girl explaining Star Wars very entertainingly. She mentions "a garage sale, but with robots" and explains that "the shiny guy always worries". Oh, and she warns not to mess with Darth Vader - he'll get ya! As she says, it's an exciting movie.I must admit to having never seen any Star Wars (so I can't vouch for its accuracy) - but hey, after watching this video, I don't need to! :D

How do you explain yourself, as a maker, to people outside of your community?

Seriously, you've been asked this over and over throughout the years. If you've ever tried to explain to a family member or friend what you do in your spare time (or for work), you've run into this question. How do you explain being a maker, crafter, hacker, builder, tinkerer, or whatever your self imposed title might be? Have you found something that tends to work, or do you still fumble with different explainations every time you get asked this? Either way, please share how you describe what you do to people who are so removed from your community that they just don't understand the usual, "I make things" response. Watch on YouTube More info can be found on the blog.

The Human Machine

It isn't that long ago that explaining human physics and behavior was imagined by copper etching. This picture seems funny to us now. But 100 years ago this was the way to explain the functions in the human head. I found this picture in an old book and I want to share it with you. This is nice for silkscreening or transfer print at T-shirt or any other surface. When you want High-Res 2208 × 2732 and 300 dpi let me know.

Cant search by rating

I am unable to search instructables or anything else by rating. Was this feature removed or is it just me with this issue? If it was removed, can you quickly explain why? It would make zero sense to remove it, if someone wanted to make something or find the best of something, they can find the highest rated instructable and that will most likely be the best choice. Also, if you remove search by rating, then you should remove being able to rate stuff altogether.  Help / explain

A topic addressing the thousands of "Published instructable doesn't show up on site" Topics

We have all seen this topic many, many times. No matter how many people we explain this too, more come back the next day with the same problem. Perhaps it would be best to add an obvious message following publishing explaining that instructables will not show up straight away. All other ideas welcome, please discuss.
