A Blog Around The Clock

i-77cb9830621cd0d12c254e60b30e9640-2008NCSBClogo200.pngThere are 81 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 112 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.

i-a241e0fa4190524cb85f47cba092f9ee-cellbio.gifErika Wittchen is a postdoc in the Department of Cell and Developmental Biology at UNC – Chapel Hill and the veteran of the first Conference.

Scott Singleton studies drug-resistant microorganisms at the UNC School of Pharmacy.

Andrea Novicki used to work on neuroendocrinology of behavior, and is now an Academic Technology Consultant at Duke. Her job is to help Duke faculty learn and use new technologies (yes, including blogging!). We first met at a local bloggers meetup, she came to the first Conference, and she came to my session at ConvergeSouth a couple of weeks go (yeay! Thank you!).

In order to meet them, you know what you have to do: register! Registration is free. Check the map for nearby hotels. And sign up for the Friday dinner.

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.
