True I have not been a scientist for a while now, and a lot may have changed
since I moved to the IT world.
One of the ideas that came out of the Pugwash conference I attended years ago
was that scientists must do a better job of explaining what they to to the
general public. I haven't seen much of a change. If you compare the number
of scientists in the country with number of them who make their work
accessible to the lay public I think "not many" still applies.
