Speaking of "going broad" with science communication, here's something I really like. As part of their Science and Entertainment Exchange initiative, the National Academies has launched The X-Change Files blog with author Jennifer Ouellette, producers Janet & Jerry Zucker, physicist Lawrence Krauss, CSI screenwriter Matt Partney, and physicist Sidney Perkowitz as contributors.

I write about the Science & Entertainment Exchange initiative in several forthcoming articles and spotlight it in talks on the road, so I look forward to following the blog!
