more on science/public communication

Lots of interesting discussion in class session and below, including several quite intriguing suggestions about local steps that might be taken to improve communication across the biology/public boundary in the long run.

Among things I want to think further about is the notion that we need to better teach science as a collective rather than individual enterprise, that science journalism might better focus on observations as opposed to people and "conclusions", and that there are some intriguing similarities between the principles of good journalism and of good science.
