Not so: It’s an end in itself. http://www.flickr.com/photos/judybaxter/2333068171/

  44. 44. We have anobligation to share
  45. 45. “The real value of social media for scientists (aside fromteaching us to communicate concisely) may be that we are forced to thinkabout how to share ideas with a broaderaudience, one that ultimately pays for most of our research: taxpayers. Publicconversations about our research make scientists accountable for delivering something ofvalue to those taxpayers. In an era of budget cutting, early-career scientists will have to beeffective ambassadors for the profession. This might manifest in conversations with familymembers or with strangers sitting next to us on a plane, or it might mean posting videos onYouTube or blogging about our on going research.The days of scientists communicatingonly with each other, in the languages of our individual disciplines,and relying on science journalists to translate for the public, are rapidlycoming to an end.” G. Small in Nature, vol. 479, page 141
