Greetings from SciO12…

Mid-January is among my favorite times of the year because it’s when the annual ScienceOnline conference is held in Research Triangle, NC. For those of you who don’t know about the conference, “ScienceOnline2012: The Unconference, the Community” is an great primer by the irrepressible Bora Zivkovic.

Unfortunately, the conference isn’t being livestreamed, but by following the #scio12 hashtag on Twitter, you can get a pretty good handle on what’s going on.

Tomorrow, I’ll be taking part in the closing plenary panel, “Check, check, 1, 2…The sticky wicket of the scientist-journalist relationship” — here’s Bora’s very worthwhile breakdown of some of what will come up during that session, which will address a lot of the issues that have been discussed in the SciWriteLabs series. In addition to me, it includes some kickass panelists: Bora, fellow PLoS blogger/NC Museum of Natural Sciences communications guru David Kroll, and Boing Boing’s Maggie Koerth-Baker. If you’re at the conference, make sure you say hi.

    So great to work with you, Seth, and thank you for the kind words. I’ll be very interested to see the feedback from those who post #scio12 summaries over the next few weeks.

    Hope you made it home without getting stuck with the bad weather. Look forward to spending some more time with you again, perhaps more relaxed. Thanks again!
