A few more blogs have discussed the OTA since our launch Wednesday…
From The Great Beyond, a blog hosted by Nature:
“Washington is full of science-policy wonks who bemoan the loss of the Office of Technology Assessment, which between 1972 and 1995 was the go-to place for smart independent advice for policymakers on science and technology topics. Fortunately, OTA junkies now have an online fix for all their needs.”
From Rhetoric and Rockets:
“Before OTA is reborn I would want to know the following:
“The Agency, which we as staffers labeled “Congress’ Own Think Tank,” had become official in 1972, and was tasked with taking a long-term look at the implications of technology on all aspects of society. By most accounts, we did a phenomenal job.”
Here’s a sampling of some of the coverage the OTA Archive launch received around the internet.
