Subject: Food Frontiers
I will be posting this on 3.14 in a few minutes:
We have removed Food Frontiers from SB.
We apologize for what some of you viewed as a violation of your immense trust in ScienceBlogs. Although we (and many of you) believe strongly in the need to engage industry in pursuit of science-driven social change, this was clearly not the right way.
How do we empower top scientists working in industry to lead science-minded positive change within their organizations? How can a large and diverse online community made up of scientists and the science-minded public help? How do companies who seek genuine dialogue with this community engage? We’ll open this challenge up to everyone on SB and beyond in the coming days so that we can all find the right solution.
We will also invite you all to participate in a conference call early next week to discuss our next steps and hear your suggestions.
I am going to be part of this phone call, even if I have to stay awake all night to do so. But i want to be sure I am representing your concerns as well as my own when I am talking to Adam, so please write these concerns out in the comments section below. I will be making a list of your concerns and adding it to mine and will make sure Adam addresses them.
