Whewell’s Gazette: Year 3, Vol. #01

Whewell’s Gazette

Your weekly digest of all the best of

Internet history of science, technology and medicine

Editor in Chief: The Ghost of William Whewell

Cornelis Bloemaert

Year 3, Volume #01

Monday 22 August 2016

EDITORIAL:

 A new edition, the first of year three, of Whewell’s Gazette the weekly #histSTM links list, bringing to your monitors all the histories of science, technology and medicine we could scoop up out of the far corners of the Internet.

In general two year of Whewell’s Gazette has convinced me that the Internet #histSTM scene is very much alive and well. There are times when I worry that some area is drying up, as in that week for a second time in a row some category manages only a meagre handful of links. Then a week later the same category will boast a solid collection of links, whilst another different one is showing signs of demise. So it goes, the ups and down of digital #histSTM.

I don’t see digital #histSTM as superseding other more traditional forms of #histSTM communication but rather as offering another channel, another possibility for historians of science, technology and medicine to communicate both with each other and with those interested in reading the products of their research. Digital communication can be fast, informal and direct but it can also be as solid and considered as the more traditional printed publications. Whewell’s Gazette aims to bring its readers the full spectrum of available digital #histSTM.

We hope that you we keep with us in this our third year of publication and that the #histSTM community will continue to supply us with enough material to keep our humble little journal sailing through cyberspace.
