My son, interviewed by Bora!

My son Sam is a budding scientist and blogger. He came to the ScienceOnline09 conference in North Carolina with me this past January and had a great time. Needless to say, Bora has tracked him down and interviewed him here. How does (if it does) blogging figure in your work? How about social networks, e.g.,…

Most of these look odd, interesting, weird, useless or some combination of the above. Here’s a couple of examples: Underwater Basket Weaving Philosophy and Star Trek Joy of Garbage (Via Ask-Dr-Kirk.)

During my summer blogging break, I thought I’d repost of few of my “greatest hits” from my old blog, just so you all wouldn’t miss me so much. This one is from November 7, 2007. It generated quite a few interesting comments, so you might want to check back at the original post. My feeling…

Summer blogging break

Yes, it’s here. My annual summer blogging break. A time to recharge my blogging batteries. Time to pack up my virtual bags, hop on my ePlane and take a posting holiday. As usual, I’ll be offline for the next four weeks or so, probably back the week of August 24th. I have scheduled some posts…

ACM responds to the blogosphere

Scott Delman, Group Publisher of the ACM, has responded to my post earlier this month on society publishers and open access. That post generated some very good discussion in the post comments that are well worth checking out.

My traditional summer blogging break is fast approaching. It’s the time of year when I take a 4-6 week break away from it all and recharge my blogging batteries. It’s something I’ve done for years and it really works for me. One of the things I do during my break is try and read a…

And Dorothea Salo makes four…

That’s four librar* blogs here at ScienceBlogs, of course, with hopefully more to come. We’re taking over! I’ll let Dorothea introduce herself: I’m very pleased to welcome you all to The Book of Trogool, a brand-new blog about e-research. My name is Dorothea Salo, I’m an academic librarian, and I am fascinated with the changes…

My Job in 10 Years: The Article

Those of you with long memories may recall that I gave a presentation at the Ontario Library Association conference in 2008 based on the My Job in 10 years blog posts. Shortly after that presentation, I was approached by Cecile Farnum, the OCULA divisional editor for the OLA magazine Access about writing the presentation as…

This is a great looking afternoon here in Toronto on Wednesday July 29th, organized by Greg Wilson and taking place at the MaRS Centre: Science 2.0: What every scientist needs to know about how the web is changing the way they work. The event is free, but registration is required. Here’s an outline of the…

Ask me an easy question too!

Between the fact that I’m still not completely recovered from my epically awful day last Friday and the blogging lethargy that always comes as my summer blogging break approaches, all the blogging-related brain cells I have left are completely fried. Fortunately, Chad comes to the rescue with a great idea! I’ll run this more or…
