Bora Zivkovic for several years has been doing interviews with the attendees at the annual ScienceOnline conferences.

The latest interview is with my longtime blog buddy Stephanie Willen Brown, AKA The CogSciLibrarian!

What aspect of science communication and/or particular use of the Web in science interests you the most?

Science needs good public relations right now, and I agree with @ErinBiba‘s essay in the May issue of Wired “Why Science Needs to Step Up Its PR Game.” I’d like to play a small part in the merger of science and PR by training public relations professionals to do good research and generally supporting their academic endeavors. Libraries and news* (newspapers, news outlets, etc.) need good public relations too, but that’s for another post.

Check it out! And while you’re at it, check out Bora’s interviews with me and my son, Sam. And don’t forget my recently reprinted interview with Bora himself.
