My plans for the North Carolina Science Blogging Conference
I'm definitely going to the NC Science Blogging Conference
on January 20. I'll be flying in Friday evening and flying out Sunday afternoon (yeah, it's only a 5 hour drive, but this is probably easier). I'll be there later than the dinner, but I'll have a rental car so if I'm feeling ambitious, I might try to make the end of the Friday night dinner. I'll also be hitting one of the Saturday night dinners.
I'm planning on these break out sessions:
2. Open Source/Open Notebook Science
, i.e. using blogs and wikis to collaborate on scientific exploration. Discussion leader: Jean-Claude Bradley
of Drexel University and Useful Chemistry
. Click over to the Open Source Sience
[sic] page to help plan this session. ROOM 118
6. Emerging technologies
and how bloggers can lead the national discussions about the ethical, legal and social implications. (More info on this session coming early Jan.) Click over to the Emerging Technologies
page to help plan this session. ROOM 118
#2 is definite, but I might change for the second break out. If anyone who can't come wants to give me feedback or information to share/questions to ask, then let me know.
I'll be live blogging and I'll try to bring my camera (and remember to take it out of my bag!). I'll also probably be on GTalk and maybe Meebo if you want to contact me there.
To summarize for other conference attendees who don't know me: I'm a sci/tech librarian and an information studies doctoral student interested in scholarly communication, informal communication, personal information/knowledge management, and just about everything else scientists can use blogs for!
