Shortly after press time for posting of the February 6, 2012 EDA WEEKLY, the writer learned that his series of 13 EDA WEEKLY articles in 2011 has been nominated for consideration for an award from the The National Academies Keck Futures Initiative (NAKFI).
NAKFI believes that successful communication is the heart of the Futures Initiative. As such, the annual Communication Awards is an important component of NAKFI. These awards are designed to recognize, promote, and encourage effective communication of science, engineering, medicine, and interdisciplinary work within and beyond the scientific community.
The Keck Futures Initiative—a program of the National Academy of Sciences, National Academy of Engineering, and Institute of Medicine, with the support of the W. M. Keck Foundation—will award prizes in October 2012 to individuals or teams who have developed creative, original work that addresses issues and advances in science, engineering and/or medicine for the general public in four categories: Book; Film/Radio/TV; Magazine/Newspaper; and Online.
