A Blog Around The Clock

Tweetlinks, 10-17-09

Follow me on Twitter to get these, and more, in something closer to Real Time (all my tweets are also imported into FriendFeed where they are much more easy to search and comment on, as well as into my Facebook wall where they are seen by quite a different set of people):

I tweeted a lot today. I was mesmerized by the rich tweetstream emanating from the National Science Writers conference in Austin – see today’s program and tune in tomorrow for more.

Unfortunately, there was not that much tweeting from the ASBH (bioethics) conference in D.C., but I will get the first-hand detailed report tomorrow night when @ccziv comes back home.

And I indulged in a lot of conversing and retweeting and other stuff, so what follows is just a selection of interesting links I tweeted today:
