Brainlings.com is a place for news, understanding, and discussion of health, science, technology, and investing. We look for and encourage professionals in their fields to write guest articles for us and we require our articles to provide references when needed and to be as accurate as the data allows any conclusions to be and not more.
Our goal is to create a “lay-man” friendly blog for science and technology news, commentary, and technical analysis articles. Our aim is to increase understanding and appreciation of science for all health and technology advances we have discovered and have yet to discover.
Many of the regular writers for Brainlings.com believe that science and technology may be the only answer for prosperity in the future of humanity. Wars and conflict are often fought over resources, be they physical (food/goods) or mental (religion/politics). To sum it up in one sentence, we believe that science and technology has the potential to increase our available resources and increase the social connectivity and understanding between cultures at risk of conflict, helping to alleviate both of these problems. We wish to promote understanding and appreciation of science and technology with the hopes that it will create a more nurturing world environment for technological innovation and research.
Why the name Brainlings? We kind of had it in our minds that the word “brainlings” represents “little brains”. It’s an image that describes well the process of science and research, as well as our attempt to parse it apart for the masses. It also makes for a nice mascot and logo.
