In addition to writing about the subject, we’re using this blog as a place to demonstrate, on a small scale, the potential of such features as live-blogging events and meetings.
If you’re a Sea Grant faculty or staff member who’d like to explore the possiblities blogs and other social media offer for enhancing your work-related communication, contact Pat Kight for advice and assistance.

Oregon Sea Grant is one of 30 Sea Grant programs across the nation, organized under the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration and dedicated to supporting an integrated program of research, outreach, and education that help people understand, rationally use, and conserve marine and coastal resources. Our activities respond to the needs of ocean users and act to stimulate the Oregon economy.
