The Intersection

Today Bora, Abel, and I visited Duke’s Sanford Institute on Public Policy for the second year in a row to discuss the coverage of science, health, and policy. We chatted with a group of undergraduates about the evolution of science blogs, the emergence of blogging networks, the role of science blogs vs the MSM, and where open-access fits in. Our beloved scibling Isis even made a guest appearance via gchat!

We had a lot of fun and special thanks to GenomeBoy for inviting us to explore ideas with his terrific class! The other ‘Beacons of the Bloggerati‘ had cameras, so photo to come. 

After the morning in such wonderful company, I’m already looking forward to next year!
