A Blog Around The Clock

i-77cb9830621cd0d12c254e60b30e9640-2008NCSBClogo200.pngThere are 51 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. The anthology should be published in time for the event. There are already 153 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 200). 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.

Ivan Oransky is the Deputy Editor of The Scientist and a blogger. His colleague Richard Gallagher recently wrote an editorial about Open Access there, among many others.

Ernie Hood is a freelance science writer/editor best known locally as the Producer/Host of Radio In Vivo, the science radio show for the Carrboro/Chapel Hill area.

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, find hotel information, 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.

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.

    Wow, Bora, this really sounds great. I got to meet Dr Oransky last year but it’s a real coup to get both him and Richard Gallagher from The Scientist. Dr Gallagher is editor-in-chief at The Scientist and had a distinguished career with both Nature and one of the Trends journals. Ernie Hood also has an amazingly successful program for such a small station. Looks like a great meeting all around!
