Supremely dangerous decision for all journalists (though legacy media will fail to understand why) as U.S. district court says a blogger doing journalism isn't actually doing journalism because she isn't what the judge considers a journalist. (Really, that's the "logic"...)

It should not be abouit who's called a journalist. It should be about what we call journalism.

i posted this too on plus. i think gendering science is dangerous ground. as a scientist, i can assure those outside there are no pink microscopes in the "big time" and why can't science just be taught as something interesting for all kids?

"I wish I were as confident that our leadership in Washington includes enough individuals who will go out their way, leave their friends, change their plans, and follow through cheerfully, doggedly, purposefully. This country needs them."
