Common Knowledge

@ the British Library, July 22

I’m happy to say that I’ll be doing a forum at the British Library on July 22, called Scientific Findings in a Digital World: What is the Genuine Article? There’s a Nature Network group you can join to participate in the creation of the agenda.

This is pretty cool. The British Library is a legendary institution, and has some personal resonance for me too – my dad wrote a big chunk of his dissertation in the reading room there. I’ll make a few introductory comments and then do my best Oprah impersonation.

    Sounds awesome! Although I did not really need the image of Oprah holding forth in the venerable BL.

    Phase 6″ in the context of “mild” novel H1N1 flu. They would have much less to worry about if they had been doing a good job all along of informing the public at teachable moments. The public would better understand possible/unfolding scenarios … and would better trust their public authorities about this.

    I heard him at the thing and then afterward at an after party, and I want it to be so revolutionary, as I enjoyed him very much in 2004, but I feel like it doesn’t feel any less stumpy than other political speech-sayers.
