Not everyone can go to SoTen, but the participants in this upcoming bloggy/onliney conference are tying to keep the discussion broad and involve readers and commenters. The latest effort along these lines is by Ed Young who has posted a post (linking to other posts) pursuant to a panel on science journalism in the age of the web. So you may want to go to his post and poke around.
You may also want to take a look at the whole SoTen program, here. The session I’m involved in, organized by Stephanie Zvan, is to be on trust and critical thinking, and a description of the session and a set of related links is here.
Also, THIS is an important touchstone to some of the topics we’ll be discussing.
