I really like Steven Johnson. Who is Steven Johnson? He describes himself as a popular science writer, but what I like is that he focuses on the human element of science. I would say that he’s more of a scientific sociologist. He doesn’t simply explain technical ideas (although he does so in a clear and engaging style without the condescending tone that some science writers inadvertently adopt), he explores the complicated relationship individuals and societies have to those ideas. His blog and his books are definitely worth reading, but if you want a quick and highly entertaining introduction to him check out this video:
My whiteboard just has half a schedule I wrote nearly six months ago and a doodle of a flower. Maybe I should buy some more markers.
