Earlier this month I had the opportunity to speak at Ryerson University's Social Media Lab about science communication.
Here's the video of my talk, Future-Proofing Dinosaur Tattoos: Communicating Science on Social Media. I touch on the importance of sharing your expertise, building community and using Twitter. Oh and rad dinosaur ink. I cover stories about sharing the intersection of fine art and science communication, as well as creating the SciArt Tweet Storm.
Hope you enjoy the talk!
Hearty thanks to Phili Mai @PhMai, Marc Esteve del Valle @NetMev, Anatoliy Gruzd @gruzd and the rest of the Social Media Lab team for putting together the Speaker Series and inviting me to participate. And a special thanks to the live audience for asking great questions and provoking a good discussion.
