Among the media dealing with scientific popularization in Spanish, exclusively online, which have been continuing to be active up till now in an uninterrupted way, besides being the most widespread one, NCYT (Noticias de la Ciencia y la Tecnología, also known as Amazings and as NC&T) is the first of its kind ever to appear on the internet. It did so in Amazings.com in 1997.
Many people feel intrigued about the meaning of "Amazings", given the fact that as such, this word does not exist, and they also wonder what its relationship with science is and why someone should choose "Amazings" as the name of a magazine dealing with science.
The explanation for this is as follows:
When in 1996, we, the founders of NCYT (the Spanish writers Manuel Montes and Jorge M. Colome) created the domain Amazings.com, we did so in order that it may serve our first magazine here, Amazing Sounds, written both in Spanish and English, and aimed at the avant-garde, alternative music. We found the domain amazingsounds too long, and amazing turned out to be more suitable, but it was already taken (by a web with a different subject, other than music and science,) and we finally chose amazings (The first word of Amazing Sounds plus the first letter of the second word). In 1997, we moved a part of the scientific popularization articles we had written in web format which we had already started on another domain in 1995, to this same domain (shortly after the final, definite addition of the HTML format to the internet) and we began to create and publish articles on news of the space sciences, which in early 1998 we extended to include general science and technology. We soon gained widespread popularity all over Latin America (today we get thousands of visits in our pages, and our bulletin has over 55,000 subscriptions), and we got to get the collaboration of numerous friends both sides of the Atlantic.
Instead of creating different domains, one for each magazine, we decided to keep them all together under the same domain, Amazings.com. As time went by, our e-zine NCYT became the most popular of all those we had started in Amazings.com. This fact, together with the name “News on Science and Technology” being too long, and the acronym NCYT also being still a bit ambiguous, made most people refer to us as "Amazings", which was a much shorter, easier name to recognise and manage. This fashion prevailed so much that it came a point when Amazings became a synonym for scientific popularization for many people.
As a pioneering web of scientific popularization in Spanish, our help was asked for in order to support similar projects, and so for instance, we started the science channel of the international web for portals of Terra in 1999, as providers of the firm Brainstorm, which took care of the web design, and during almost five years we were contributing most of the contents for the science channel.
With this and other similar initiatives, NCYT also became, from the year 2001 on, a regular provider of scientific contents for other webs, as well as for publishers of paper magazines, paper newspapers, intranets and two important publishing groups. Some of our clients have been so for over ten years. Due to this aspect of NCYT, we contribute many articles to some well known science websites. For instance, since 2005, we have been publishing about thirty articles weekly in Solociencia.com. On the other hand, some of the articles of NCYT are also broadcast by means of spoken word on radio programmes such as La Biblioteca de Alejandría (The Alexandria Library, with Juan Acosta, Iván Blanquer, Carlos Cruells and Jaime Cuevas) and Vanguardia de la Ciencia (Frontline of Science, by Ángel Rodríguez Lozano).
We also are proud to have contributed our articles, by means of contracts for the supply of contents, to sections of science news for websites or paper magazines from scientific organizations such as Andalucía Investiga - Andalucia Researches - (from Spain), Fundacyt (Fundación para la Ciencia y la Tecnología, - Foundation for Science and Technology - from Ecuador), and the CSIC (Consejo Superior de Investigaciones Científicas, - Superior Council Of Scientific Research -) in Spain, among other institutions.
The activity of NCYT is also taken into account by some organizations in the diplomatic arena. Since January 2002, NCYT is used as a source for some of the articles on science and technology written in French by the services in Science and Technology of the Embassies of France all over the World, a network from the French Ministry for Foreign and European Affairs. Another example is the News Service of the Senate Committee of Foreign Relations of Mexico, which publishes some of our articles.
From 2002 to 2006 we were quite active in the United States, where NCYT contributed contents for a portal, a web, a paper magazine and a paper newspaper, in Spanish, aimed at the Spanish community in this country. In actual fact, our mother website Amazings.com appears as cited in over 500 scientific articles of the prestigious news agency United Press International, founded in 1907, and based in the United States.
On the other hand, several paper publications and websites have talked about us in and outside of Spain, and we even have had impersonators who have taken our name Amazings to popularize science.
In 2007 we started to collaborate, for free, with an innovative supplement in Braille, which has over 70,000 issues in each edition, and which complements four paper newspapers. In this supplement one same surface is used to print text and image besides superimposing Braille characters. The supplement, which is called ConTacto (ConTact), was created by Daniel Serbali, and we have contributed over 120 articles. ConTacto started in Argentina, but now the possibility that it can be spread to some other countries in Latin America is being considered. In Argentina, ConTacto has had a very good success, up to the point of having been declared of cultural interest by the Cámara de Diputados de Argentina (Deputy Chamber of Argentina).
Besides our collaboration, the issue of reading in Braille is important to us, since one of our main collaborators to produce NCYT is a blind person.
Some of our articles are also freely given for publication in webs of the following institutions:
-Fundación para la Curación de las Lesiones Medulares (Fenexy) (Foundation for the Healing of Medular Lesions), from Spain
-Asociación Antidroga Vieiro - Anti-drug Association Vieiro - (Declared as being of social interest for the Autonomous Community of Galicia, Spain, with regard to drug-addiction issues)
-Asociación de Alcohólicos Rehabilitados de Cádiz (ARCA)- (Association of Rehabilitated Alcohol Addicts), in Spain.
-Sociedad Española de Especialistas en Tabaquismo (SEDET)(Spanish Society of Specialists in Tobacco Addiction), from Spain.
-Asociación Nacional de Audioprotesistas (National Association of Hearing Aid Makers), from Spain.
-Federación Argentina de Enfermería (Argentinian Federation of Nursing)
In 2009, we were awarded the Premio Almediam (Almediam Award) to the best portal of science and technology. Among the people and institutions awarded within other modalities in that edition of the Premios Almediam, we can find Greenpeace (in the modality of Best Labour For The Defence Of The Environment), the Galician collective "Pallasos en Rebeldía" (-Clowns in Rebelliousness-, in the modality Best Solidarity Portal) and Rebelion.org (in the modality Best Free Thinking Portal). In NCYT we have always aimed at supporting renewable energies, popularizing any advances or new ideas arising in this sector. Today, solar energy and wind energy are about to start substituting for fossil fuels, and to make nuclear power plants unnecessary in numerous parts of the world, something that was thought to be unattainable when we founded Amazings.com. We have also paid a special attention to popularizing news on the environment, from those related to climate change to those referring to biodiversity, to the problems of endangered species, environmental pollution and other topics.
In 2010, we were awarded the distinction of Recommended Website by the Digital Committee of the National Library of Chile. Among the other 6 recommended webs that year, is also found, for example, the one by the Royal Society (the scientific society with the longest continued existence all over the world, founded in 1660, and amongst whose members we can find some well-known scientists such as Isaac Newton, Charles Darwin and Albert Einstein).
On February 2011, we reinforced our domain Amazings.com with the domain Noticiasdelaciencia.com. That allowed us to upgrade NCYT without having to stop Amazings.com temporarily, nor face the technical difficulties of having to combine pages of very different technical, and in some cases incompatible, designs. In Amazings.com, we offer a selection of our most remarkable, current issues in the week, and the easy access, in the format of headlines ordered by topic and updated in real time, to all our most recent contents, which include articles, interviews, book reviews and recommendations on the most interesting articles of the best science blogs in Spanish. In Noticiasdelaciencia.com, we offer the same contents, but in newspaper format. A part of the newspaper archives is found in Amazings.com and the other is in Noticiasdelaciencia.com. The section of daily bulletins is in Amazings.com. Other sections also are distributed between both webs. Since 2011, a selection of our best articles is published in our magazine Amazings (ISSN 2014-5047), available online in our web Amazings.com in PDF printable on paper. Likewise, our contents are accessible from other domains.

The people who make NCYT
Popularizing the day-to-day scientific and technological progress is a fascinating experience for those of us who make the team behind NCYT, but it also is a very painstaking task, since we do not limit ourselves to consulting what others write in magazines, webs or blogs, but rather we always get to the sources. We always work with first-hand information.
We select the most interesting issues from the many press releases daily published by scientific institutions, we translate, we summarize, we write, we reshape and we often add our own explanations and comments additional to the information of the piece of news. We share our work according to our personal technical specialties, for each one of us. (Biochemists take care of news related to Biochemistry; engineers are in charge of issues related to Engineering, and so forth, for the other general issues). Furthermore, another two people make an independent, additional revision of each text, comparing it with the information from which it was developed. In this way, we make sure we are giving the most exacting scientific informative rigour to our articles. Our professional zeal is such, that we have sometimes detected technical errors in press releases published by scientific institutions, like for example a well-known US lab, and it has been us the ones who have warned those institutions so that they could correct their error.
Besides taking care of the scientific rigour of our articles, we try to make our articles easy to understand, even for a non-specialised public, as well as making them entertaining. The revision of style is made by two writers who have already published books on popularization of science and also have been awarded several literary prizes.
Part of the graphic material we publish is made by us and includes photography, computer graphics and artistic images. We currently have three people in charge of the graphic design department.
