    We need a science editor for our latest project NextPowerUp (www.nextpowerup.com).

    If you can write decent English, have an interest in popular science and don't mix it with the supernatural, let me know (email, instant messenger, reply in this thread).

    Obviously some understanding of the topics is required, but you don't have to be a physics major or rocket scientist (we'd love to have a rocket scientist :pimp:).

    Are you looking for someone as an article contributor, editor/check for others... or both?

    You need the program to be specialized in editing science like scientific calculators.......
    or a person who will review the latest tech news?

    article contributor

    if we end up with multiple science authors, it would be cool if we could get some cross checks going

    ´
    Science that matters to us (popular science), space stuff, nanotech, climate etc... robots .. with lasers

    I'm great at proof reading. I'd love to be Head Grammar Nazi! I don't know how much time I would have to write science stories though, hence checking everyone else's work would do me fine for now. I love anything to do with science.

    And you know I can write well from my time writing news here. ;)

    Ok, there's a few directions as an editor/contributor, finding and regurgitating existing and new articles, and the more creative side of making up new ideas and blending others, not including paranormal or supernatural, lol. What's your vision there?

    I would have said the "supernatural or religious". Just in case.

    Drone is by far the most prominent poster in science and technology with great attention to article details.
