ok, so it shouldn’t be the only way to get your news, but it sure makes it fun.
phylotaxis.com is the site. There’s circle icons that dance around the screen like a lottery machine. Just click on one of the moving icons and a new screen will pop up with a large photograph, headline, and brief intro to article. Click on the photo and you’ll go to the original article.
There’s a “science culture” slider at the bottom if you prefer your news to be slanted towards one way more than the other.
What I really enjoy about this site is the large photograph that accompanies each article. Seeing a large chunk of text isn’t enough for me. I really like having that visual there to hold my hand and say that eveything’s going to be ok.
