I have to say I agree completely with your points. A couple of times, I have read amazing stuff on aspects of Stem had no idea about. It was such fun reading about space science, medicine, astronomy etc. on Steemit.
But I have an observation:
As science writers, emphasis must be placed on writing in a simple language such that laymen can understand. If you must include technical jargons, be as simplistic as possible or break done the hard bones.
Thanks for the piece. Cheers
