Former Scibling Sheril Kirshenbaum, late of the Intersection, has moved to a new blog: Convergence. Let’s be honest: most of us are about intersections, convergences, confluences and whatnot; I’ve often described BioE as “the intersection of art & science.” But Sheril’s kicking the metaphor up a notch:
Convergence is a forum to explore all sorts of topics, but the primary focus will be the interdisciplinary nature of understanding our world. For example, if we aspire to protect biodiversity, we must address social issues. Boosting fisheries requires economics. Tackling our tremendous energy problem involves a great deal of policy. That’s what this blog is all about: people, science, decision-making, and more. It’s where seemingly unrelated fields overlap, boundaries blur, and practical solutions are sought.
So, Convergence is like the (lower-case) intersection of . . . everything and science. Can’t wait to see what she does with the place!
