The piece in New Scientist the other day generated a couple of follow ups and I think it’s worth giving some notes on the process (for example my co-authors and I weren’t contacted by either of the below publications).

The Altantic Wire did a really nice job - they’d clearly read and understood the paper, they used a graphic that was in the paper, gave a high level explanation of it and recycled some quotes from another article in a reasonable way. I think it’s a nice example of science reporting - someone reads the paper and then writes about it.

Separately - I found that this Russian News site was driving a lot of traffic to my academic url - and a helpful colleague was able to tell me that it was a (reasonably) direct and fairly flattering translation of the original New Scientist piece.
