In case you've been wondering about the blog silence, it's been a busy month. I turned in my over 20 page dissertation proposal, had my first PhD committee meeting, and just this weekend was off and away in North Carolina for Science Writers 2012. There, I helped Karyn Traphagen and Matt Shipman talk about quantifying social media impact. Expect to hear more on the incredible weekend shortly, but in the meantime, head over to NASW to read my recap of the session!
