Brazilian science literacy

Even though there’s a huge digital divide in Brazil, as many people use the Internet to gain science knowledge as use museums. And no other source approaches either of those.

If I had to pick one lesson from this morning’s session and the afternoon session, it would be that the internet has arrived, and scientists should do a lot more to take advantage of that. The challenge is getting science content into unexpected contexts, so that people who don’t know they want to learn about science still encounter some of it now and then.

    What do you think of Twitter Times, now, Josh?

    I hope at some point you can figure out who the friends of friends are and block a few. It is pretty handy, overall.
