New York Times science writer Amy Harmon took home the Pulitzer Prize for explanatory journalism on Monday for her series of articles on genetic testing, says Jonathan Eisen at The Tree of Life. "Overall, I like her reporting," Eisen says. "What we all really need to do is convince her to start a blog. Print media is so 21st century." (But, that would mean that Harmon wouldn't be able to win a Pulitzer, even if her blogging was beyond 21st century, or, as a more critical bunch opines, the prizes are in effect "totem poles of the newspaper industry; beloved relics of former glory.")
