I stumbled across a new innovative blog article. It is call "Ask a Science Blogger". It is similar to a blog carnival, with multiple submissions, but it is more structured in its creation. The idea is that each week a question is posed to the bloggers who host their blog on Scienceblogs.com. The various answers to the question are then formed into a blog index similar to a carnival. The process allows anyone to submit questions for future consideration.
This weeks question is "If you could shake the public and make them understand one scientific idea, what would it be?"
Very interesting responses here: Ask A ScienceBlogger, Round Three: the Results are In!
They are all excellent responses, but I would have to agree most with grrlscientist at Living the Scientific Life, that "what the scientific method is" is critically important. Enjoy.
