"Science is the only news..." So true today.

In a meeting all morning; just heard about the neutrino/speed of light findings and immediately remembered this:

"Science is the only news. When you scan through a newspaper or magazine, all the human interest stuff is the same old he-said-she-said, the politics and economics the same sorry cyclic dramas, the fashions a pathetic illusion of newness. Even the technology is predictable if you know the science. Human nature doesnĊt change much; science does, and the change accrues, altering the world irresversibly."

Stewart Brand
quoted in The Third Culture (Brockman)
