How do we get scientists involved with new technology? Perhaps we should start with blogging. It’s easy, free, and many scientists have much to share with others.
I see there is great interest in this area, and I may have to try to get out to North Carolina in January for ScienceOnline’09.
ScienceOnline’09 is the third annual science blogging conference in North Carolina. It will take place Jan. 16-18, 2009 at the Sigma Xi Center in Research Triangle Park. It’s free and open to all scientists, bloggers, educators, students, journalists and others who want to explore science communication on the Web. See the conference wiki for program details and more. Register here starting Sept. 15.
So, why isn’t there something like this out west?
