[From their website] Australian Science is a non-profit, privately-funded initiative dedicated to advancement of science, technology and education in Australia. Our secondary mission is in the area of preservation of digital information, reference data, and scientific materials. We hope to establish a unified list of libraries, universities, and technology centres equally dedicated to this goal. Australian Science is one of the key partners within the network committed to the advancement of science both in Australia and worldwide.
Australian Science is located in the heart of the Brisbane Technology Park (BTP), a prestigious center for the advancement of scientific and technological research and development. Currently home to over 86 nationally and internationally-renowned corporations, the Brisbane Technology Park is a prime location for businesses seeking high profile corporate exposure catering to the needs of both businesses engaged in both established and emerging technologies alike.
All Things Digital
[From their website] AllThingsD.com is a Web site devoted to news, analysis and opinion on technology, the Internet and media. But it is different from other sites in this space. It is a fusion of different media styles, different topics, different formats and different sources.
Because the site is wholly owned by Dow Jones, publisher of The Wall Street Journal, we aim to adhere to the journalistic standards of the best of the mainstream media. But, because it is run autonomously as a small online start-up, we aim to exhibit the fresh thinking and nimbleness of the best of the new media. We want to be first, and sassy, but also well sourced and accurate. We will offer lots of opinion and analysis, but plenty of fact as well.
The Public Library of Science
[From their website] PLOS is a non profit publisher and advocacy organization on a mission to lead a transformation in research communication. From its start, PLOS has engaged in debate about science and medicine.
[From their website] Welcome to Double X Science, the online science magazine for women.
This site exists to bring science to the woman in you, whoever she is, whatever she does.
Our goal is to bring evidence-based science stories and angles on science specifically of interest to the female-gendered audience. That audience might be XY or XXY or XYY or XO or XX and that gender might vary from day to day, but all are welcome here. Biology doesn’t offer a shorthand for “female gender,” but if you’re feeling XX-y with or without a double X, we’ve got science for you.
If you have suggestions for links, ideas, or stories for the site, please let us know. You can contact us at DoubleXScience@gmail.com. Follow us on Twitter @DoubleXSci.
[From their website] Laugh now — or the planet gets it.
You know how some people make lemonade out of lemons? At Grist, we’re making lemonade out of looming climate apocalypse.
It’s more fun than it sounds, trust us!
Grist has been dishing out environmental news and commentary with a wry twist since 1999 — which, to be frank, was way before most people cared about such things. Now that green is in every headline and on every store shelf (bamboo hair gel, anyone?), Grist is the one site you can count on to help you make sense of it all.
Each day, we use our Clarity-o-Meter to draw out the real meaning behind green stories, and to connect big issues like climate change to daily life. We count on our users to bring their stories to the table, too — through blogs, photos, and whatever else they care to share. Except Jell-O molds. Those things scare us.
At Grist, we take our work seriously, but we don’t take ourselves too seriously. Because of the many things this planet is running out of, sanctimonious tree-huggers ain’t one of them.

Hatching conversations about science.
[From their website] "Science says the first word on everything, and the last word on nothing" ~ Victor Hugo
Science is first of all about discovery (the first word on
everything). But the more science knows, the more it realizes what it doesn't know (the last word on nothing). Curiosity and humility: the human condition.
[From their website] Life's Little Mysteries answers fascinating questions about the world around you and the stuff in it, from things in the news and on your mind to crazy questions you didn't even know you had. Our team of experienced reporters and editors do serious research while having loads of fun, to explain the world's objects and phenomena, natural and man-made.

[From their website] OnEarth (pronounced "on earth," not "one earth") is a quarterly magazine and online publication of thought and opinion about the environment. It is open to diverse points of view; the opinions expressed by the editors are their own and not necessarily those of our publisher, the nonprofit Natural Resources Defense Council. NRDC does not endorse the products and or services that are advertised in OnEarth.
Founded in 1979 as The Amicus Journal, today our publication -- in both print and online -- explores the challenges that confront our world, the solutions that promise to heal it, and the way we can use those solutions to improve our homes, our health, our communities, and our future.
[From their website] “The Panda’s Thumb” is many things…
First, it is an example of jury-rigged evolutionary adaptation made famous by the late Stephen Jay Gould in an essay of the same name. Second, it is the legendary virtual bar serving the community of the legendary virtual University of Ediacara somewhere in the Ediacaran hills of southern Australia, growing out of the lore of the Usenet talk.origins newsgroup. And now it is a weblog giving another voice for the defenders of the integrity of science, the patrons of “The Panda’s Thumb”.
Much as in any tavern serving a university community, you can expect to hear a variety of levels of discussion, ranging from the picayune to the pedantic. The authors are people associated with the virtual University of Ediacara (and thus the talk.origins newsgroup), and various web sites critical of the antievolution movement, such as the TalkOrigins Archive, TalkDesign, and Antievolution.org.
So, here’s a virtual pub crawl that you might actually learn something from. We hope you find your time spent here pleasant and rewarding.
[From their website] RealClimate is a commentary site on climate science by working climate scientists for the interested public and journalists.

All posts are signed by the author(s), except ‘group’ posts which are collective efforts from the whole team. This is a moderated forum.
