Technology Research News

  • Well written, breadth
  • None
What you think you’ll see is pretty much what you get here. Organized as a sort of on-line newspaper of technology, “Technology Research News” provides a superb collection of well written, timely articles and more in-depth feature articles. Each makes for fun and (in places) fascinating reading. At the site, you can learn how a quantum computer works, about the latest DNA sequencing biochip only 10 cm across, and about a photochemical process for storing images in liquid. The site provides RSS feeds, numerous options for searching, an extensive article archive, a glossary, a forum, an events directory, a research directory, classified ads and even T-shirts. Whew! I only wonder at the relatively minor oversight of leaving out the kitchen sink. One of the most impressive science news sites I’ve ever seen.
