Sharp-eyed readers may have spotted that, once established, Sciencebase moved on from a simplistic static site to a CMS-driven blog. As such, some of the pages (with a small p as opposed to a WordPress big P) don’t have the acoutrements of the CMS. This isn’t deliberate, it’s an artefact of the way I set up Sciencebase way-back when.
Here are a few that have already made the grade, hopping from an early edition of Elemental Discoveries (the proto-Sciencebase ezine) to the fully fledged CMS – Touch Wood – A Guide to Viagra Louts, the story of Viagra, The Real Butterfly Effect, how the physical structure of butterfly wings is helping technologists create new optically functional materials, and Scientific Stereotypes, in which I discussed children’s perception of scientists and whether or not that perception matters to science.
There are dozens more feature articles in the Sciencebase archives outside the blog system, which you can access using the Science Articles link in the menu above.
