YearlyKos science panel update

….or, where I impersonate PZ.

As PZ noted last month, he was tapped to moderate the science caucus at YearlyKos, featuring fellow Sciencebloggers Chris Mooney and Ed Brayton, along with Cosmic Variance’s Sean Carroll. However, PZ had to go and get himself some other plans, and I was fortunate enough to be chosen to step in. It’s still early, so I’m brainstorming and have read the comments at Pharyngula and DailyKos regarding what everyone would like to get out of the science sessions at YearlyKos, but in case you didn’t see either of those threads the first time around, or if you did but have additional ideas, feel free to toss them out here. Since it’s YearlyKos, we’re looking at the intersection of science, blogging, mainstream journalism, and politics, so any of that is fair game…

    Have fun there! Keep them posted about the current NIH and NSF budgets, and tell them to lobby their house & senate reps.

    Have you considered some participation by an historian of science, particularly when the discussions turn political/social/cultural? Or is that Mooney’s niche?

    I think Myers chickened out because he was afraid that Brayton might sit on him.
