Welcome to EngineerBlogs.org!!!!

YASBC. But this time an engineering blog community. This is a fantastic new development if you ask me, especially in a blogging environment domininated by science blogs. Time to let the engineers into the clubhouse, even if that means that we’ll have to start serving massive quantities of various beverages to keep them all happy.…

The women science bloggers conversation is getting so long and elongated, I thought it would be interesting and, I hope, useful to put all the posts in rough chronological order. By rough I mean that I haven’t attempted to order the posts within each day of publication. Perhaps I’ll take another pass at the list…

Since the Perils of blogging as a woman under a real name panel at ScienceOnline 2011 there’s been quite a bit of commentary floating around the science blogosphere about how women are represented within that community. A kind of introduction: The perils women sciencebloggers face are not that different than those we face in the…

I’m always very happy to see a librarian blogger embedded in a science blogging network. It’s very important to get the library message out beyond just the library echo chamber and to the faculty, students and researchers who are out patron community. So I was very pleased to see Elizabeth Brown’s new blog, Social Disruption,…

I have a whole pile of science-y book reviews on two of my older blogs, here and here. Both of those blogs have now been largely superseded by or merged into this one. So I’m going to be slowly moving the relevant reviews over here. I’ll mostly be doing the posts one or two per…

Yeah, I’m talking about you, #scio11. The conference that still has significant twitter traffic three days after it’s over. I’ve been to conferences that don’t have that kind of traffic while they’re happening. In fact, that would be pretty well every other conference. Every edition of ScienceOnline seems to have a different virtual theme for…

First of all, let me make this perfectly clear: Scott Rosenberg’s Say Everything: How Blogging Began, What It’s Becoming, and Why It Matters is a seriously terrific book. If you’re a blogger, if you’re interested in the phenomenon of blogging or even if you’re just interested in where the media are headed, then you owe…

#ArsenicLife #Fail: A teachable moment

For those that haven’t heard about the NASA/arsenic bacteria story that’s been exploding all over the science blogosphere over the last couple of weeks, I like the summary over at Jonathan Eisen’s Tree of Life blog: NASA announced a major press conference at the conference they discussed a new Science paper claiming to show the…

Welcome to YASBC: Occam’s Typewriter

Yes, it was quiet for a while there, but it seems that change and disruption are inevitable in the world of science blogging. Welcome to Yet Another Science Blogging Community: Occam’s Typewriter. Apparently born amidst much controversy and drama, it’s a new community formed mostly (all?) from former Nature Network bloggers. For at least a…

The Science of Blogging

Via Bora Zivkovic, I see that there’s a new blog in town — this one devoted to the joys of scientists blogging to advance their work. It’s called Science of Blogging and it’s by Peter Janiszewski and Travis Saunders who blog at Obesity Panacea. I’ll let them explain their mission: Social media provides a tremendous…
