Why Portholes, not Portals?

SciTechDaily uses the term “portholes” because it’s what the New York Times called us, emphasizing our narrow subject view but great depth of field compared to the many very bloated “portal” sites.

It’s not because we can’t spell, don’t know the lingo or have strange accents that make them homonyms! We just liked the term and the image it engenders …

“eppur si muove”

This is what Galileo is alleged to have said on going into house arrest:
“but it does move …”

We like to think that it represents the indomitable nature of the questioning, questing mind … the sort that would appreciate SciTechDaily!
