As you know you can see everyone who’s registered for the conference, but I highlight 4-6 participants every day as this may be an easier way for you to digest the list. You can also look at the Program so see who is doing what.
Stacy Baker has changed schools since last year, but she’s coming back nonetheless, again with eight of her students. As you may remember, her session on the use of the Web in middle/high science classroom from the perspective of the Facebook generation was the Big Hit of ScienceOnline09. Miss Baker has developed a classroom website and blog, she tweets and also writes a blog targeted at other teachers. She now teaches at Staten Island Academy which is experimenting with the Web and social networks quite a bit. Read my interview with Miss Baker from a few months ago. She and her students will be moderating a session Blogging the Future – The Use of Online Media in the Next Generation of Scientists at ScienceOnline2010.
Karl Leif Bates is the Director of Research Communications at Duke University, editor of Duke Research and a blogger and twitterer. Read his ABATC interview from last year. At the conference, Karl will lead a session on Medical journalism.

He produces the This Week in Virology podcasts, tweets, and writes a blog. Check out his Wikipedia page and his Twibe. At the conference, Vincent will co-moderate the session Getting the Science Right: The importance of fact checking mainstream science publications — an underappreciated and essential art — and the role scientists can and should (but often don’t) play in it.
Maria Droujkova leads the mathfuture network and the Physics + Math + Modeling local community. She is the Director of Natural Math and tweets. At the conference, Maria will co-moderate the session Connections with mathematics and programming through modeling.
