mmcov2We’ve been fans of the solution-oriented research and policy magazine Miller-McCune for awhile (we even gave it the Utne Independent Press Award for best science/tech coverage in 2009), but now it’s in the mainstream spotlight of the Los Angeles Times. In his rather favorable profile of the magazine and its founder Sara Miller McCune, reporter James Rainey describes the publication as “that bright and earnest new student, full of promise but still striving to get closer to the head of the class.” Rainey feels the magazine could appeal to a broader base and bring in more “everyday characters from outside academia.” True enough, but you have to admit that Miller-McCune does a fine job of making all that wonky research highly digestible.
