I was recently interviewed for Sigma BioBlogs about science education and outreach, and the interview is now online - check it out: @BoraZ – Science online’s BlogFather on Science Outreach and Education.
Next Science Online NYC will be on December 8th at 7pm in room Weiss 305 (Rockefeller University, E66th and York Ave., New York, NY). The topic is Matching medium and messengers to meet the masses (very related to the topic of my interview above), with a stellar panel: Darlene Cavalier, Jamie Vernon, Molly Webster and Kevin Zelnio. It is free, but you need to RSVP (just click on the link) to get the tickets.
#NYCSciTweetup #6 is this Thursday, December 1st, at Peculier Pub. I will, sadly, not make it. But you should come if you can. My most likely next trip to NYC will be December 12-15, fingers crossed.
This is the time of year when there is a lot of work going on behind the scenes, organizing all the little details of ScienceOnline2012, with not much visible to the public.
The waitlist is already very long, but we are still keeping the application form open (the scholarship application is closed). Watch our traditional Thanksgiving message. Keep checking out the updates on the blog.
If you are registered, get your travel plans in place and hotel room reserved. Then organize for carpooling and room-sharing if you need to. Also, write a blog post about yourself and post the link to the Blog and Media coverage page on the wiki (just edit the page) and make sure that your own homepage/blog is correctly listed on the participants' Blogroll.
If you are planning to come early or stay a little longer after the meeting, there are plenty of things to do and see in the Triangle region of North Carolina.
Finally, to help us make sure there is plenty of coffee and food and swag and buses/shuttles and travel grants for students, we are still looking for additional sponsors - let us know if your organization is interested.
