The African Way
I'm happy to see that the piece I wrote for the Dec / Jan issue of Seed has been posted online. It's about the upcoming African Union Summit, which will focus on the role of science in the continent's development.
In case anyone is interested in reading more, Nature published a feature and an editorial about this topic earlier this week as well.
I am a freelance science journalist based in New York City -- in other words, I live in the most expensive city in the world without a steady income. I have written for publications including Seed, The Scientist, the Boston Globe, Wired and Scientific American. Check out my website at http://www.melindawenner.com.
