There seems to be some misunderstandings in relation to the “Digesting Science” series of post. I would strongly recommend that you look at Alison Thomson’s site, which explains her work and the motivation behind it. Her work was not done for the blog. From our perspective it has been great collaborating with her; not only is it interesting and engaging, but a fresh look at the way we communicate with the public. The fact that it is generating conversation and debate means it is achieving something we have difficulty doing with our daily posts. Any ideas and help in communicating science and MS to the wider public would be much appreciated.
