We are very excited to announce that the Keynote speaker for the sixth annual ScienceOnline conference will be the anthropologist and National Geographic Explorer Mireya Mayor (@mireyamayor on Twitter)!

Among many accomplishments, Mireya is the author of the wonderful book “Pink Boots and a Machete” which was reviewed here at #SciAmBlogs both by me and by Jason. See also her interview.

If you follow Mireya on Twitter, or have read her book or watched her on TV, you know we're in for some great fun! And science. And lessons about science communication and more. It will be awesome!
