Top 10 science and technology writers

Filed under
Sci/Tech

A couple of weeks ago a stalwart of the IT writing business died. It got me thinking about the craft of writing and, after much gestation, we decided to come up with a list of the top writers who had explained and expanded our knowledge of science and technology, from a factual basis.

In fact, you could argue that it is science fiction writers who do most to popularise and educate about science, even if almost every science fiction film does the opposite. We will be doing a Top 10 of those writers next week (please put suggestions in the Comments section) but for now let's look at the science and technology writers that that deal in the world as we know it.

While this list does contain more than a few brilliant scientific minds, we wanted to focus on people who write well about the subject and explain complex issues to the rest of us in an understandable and entertaining way as well. Let us know if you think anyone's been missed out.
