Stuff I showed on my panel at AAAS

Since I don’t do PowerPoint but use the Web for presentations instead, and since the recordings from AAAS are not free (yes, you can buy them, I won’t), and since some people have asked me to show what I showed at my panel there, here is the list of websites I showed there. I opened…

This is the first time ever that I cared about SXSW conference or was jealous for not being there. Watching the blogs and Twitter stream, it appears to have been better and more exciting than ever. I guess I’ll have to figure out a way to finally get myself there next year…. But this post…

You may be aware that, as of recently, one of my tasks at work is to monitor media coverage of PLoS ONE articles. This is necessary for our own archives and monthly/annual reports, but also so I could highlight some of the best media coverage on the everyONE blog for everyone to see. As PLoS…

SciBlings at AAAS10

Four Sciblings (and three ex-Sciblings – Sheril Kirshenbaum, Chris Mooney and Carl Zimmer – but once a Scibling always a Scibling rule applies, so we hung together some…) went to the AAAS meeting last week in San Diego. There is a lot of coverage in the MSM (and a little bit on blogs – it’s…

This was the slideshow of the presentation Dennis Meredith gave at the AAAS 2010, just before me on Sunday morning – this was pre-recorded. The live presentation was even more fun: Using Multimedia to Advance Your Research View more presentations from Dennis Meredith.

AAAS 2010 meeting – quick update

AAAS meeting is in full swing. Follow hashtag #AAAS10 on Twitter. My session is tomorrow at 8:30am. It will be recorded, I think, so you’ll be able to see it in a day or two after. Sorry for no (live)blogging but there is no online access in the convention center…. I will wait until I…

AAAS 2010 meeting – arrived in San Diego

After four uneventful flights and a crazy night in Vegas (no, not crazy in that way), I have finally arrived in San Diego. Checked in a hotel that is far away from the convention center. Exhausted. Pretty much impossible to get online, use the iPhone, check mail anywhere in Las Vegas. The only means of…
