Welcome to Discover’s New Blog, The Crux!

By Amos Zeeberg (Discover Web Editor) | November 14, 2011 3:54 pm

Today Discover is launching a new group blog—congratulations on already finding it—on big ideas in science and how these ideas are playing out in the world. The blog is written by an outstanding group of writer/bloggers and scientist/writers who will bring you the most compelling thoughts throughout the world of science, the stuff most worth knowing.

Come read some of the posts the bloggers have already published to see where we’re going, and let us know in the comments what you think of the blog so far and what we should be doing in the future. (You can also email me at azeeberg [at] discovermagazine [dot] com—I’m the editor of the blog and the site as a whole.)

Thanks for checking out The Crux, and I hope you’re as intrigued and amazed by these nuggets of science as we are.

    Marketing is a bad medicine. Shameful to make it the priority. When the science is there it will make enough money to make it a marketable product. The last time I checked they are still making boys and girls to market this product toward.

    I noticed that most of the Author links go to …/jlenzer – looks like someone copied and pasted this a few times too many, without subsequently updating 😉

    AZ: Busted! You’re right about not only the problem but the source of it, too. Should be all fixed now.

    I am extremely disappointed (to put it mildly) that you have taken the name of my science blog as your own!! THE CRUX already exists!! It is new and I am working hard to get it going as an independent blog. Please visit blog.quarmby.ca.

    Apologies. I see now that we actually launched on PRECISELY the same day. Sigh.
