"Science is the only news.
When you scan through a newspaper or magazine, all the human interest stuff is the same old he-said-she-said,
the politics and economics the same sorry cyclic dramas, the fashions a pathetic illusion of newness,
and even the technology is predictable if you know the science.
Human nature doesn't change much; science does, and the change accrues, altering the world irreversibly."
We now live in a world in which the rate of change is the biggest change.
Science has thus become a big story." 3rd culture, edge.org
