There are 82 days until the Science Blogging Conference. The wiki is looking good, the Program is shaping up nicely, and there is more and more blog and media coverage already. There are already 109 registered participants and if you do not register soon, it may be too late once you decide to do so (we’ll cap at about 230). Between now and the conference, I am highlighting some of the people who will be there, for you to meet in person if you register in time.
Jennifer Ouellette is a former English major turned science writer. She has published articles in places such as Discover, New Scientist, and Salon, as well as two delicious books: The Physics of the Buffyverse and Black Bodies and Quantum Cats: Tales from the Annals of Physics. For most of us in the blogosphere, though, we know Jennifer (and her alter-ego Jen-Luc Piquant) from her amazing blog Cocktail Party Physics.
Jennifer will be the Guest Star of the Conference, giving the Big Talk at the end of the day.
If you are coming, exchange information about where you are staying, if you are offering a ride, need a ride, or want to carpool on the Ride Board – just edit the wiki page and add the query or information.
Some of our Friday lab tours are now in place, so you can start signing up to join one of them.
Get updates and get in touch with other participants via our Facebook Event group (I see that some who originally responded “Maybe attending” are now registered).
Please use ‘scienceblogging.com’ as your tag when writing blog posts about it or uploading pictures. You can also download and print out the flyers (PDF1 and PDF2) and post them on bulletin boards at your office, lab or school.
