Will Grant and I have written an article on the Diffusion blog titled “An Atlas of Now” describing the project I’m working on at CPAS.
We are in the process building a system – using both established and novel open source intelligence methods – to gauge, assess and display changes in the online discussion of science and technology issues, controversies and dangerous alternate conceptions. Our goal is to develop a science communication ‘atlas of now’: revealing geographical and temporal changes in attitudes to science and technology issues throughout society.
(An Atlas of Now)
We will be presenting a paper on this project at the Australian Science Communicators National Conference February 2010.
