Intellectual Infidelity

I’m a long-time reader of New Scientist (I even wrote a few articles for them back in the 1980s and early 1990s), but having browed BBC’s new Knowledge Magazine, I’m seriously tempted to stray… But it makes me wonder yet again: where are the Carl Sagans and David Suzukis of computing? Lots of people write about what’s going on in our industry, but there don’t seem to be any rock-star popularizers for the science. (Go ahead, make me an offer…)
