Overwhelmed at ScienceOnline 2009

i-f875c0b07d9b3cb6229668554781b35a-alice.jpgOMG I am at ScienceOnline! In (also cold) RTP! And I’ve now met ScienceWoman! And let me say she is as lovely in person as she is online. And I’ve met a whole bunch of other folks, but am still trying to sort out the politics of pseudonymity. Hopefully I’ll get to post some official blogger photos later. But in the meantime, both SW’s and my sessions are this morning. Wish us luck! 🙂

    I’d like to know how pseudonymity would work – do they have “name” tags with their blog name on them, but not their real name? Are you not allowed to ask them their real names, where they are from, or any other personal information? What happens if they are recognizable? Or is it is one of these things were “what happens at ScienceOnline, stays at ScienceOnline”?

    Sounds like a great conference so far! Thanks for the updates!

    It just never felt odd at all to address people with pseudonyms. “Hey, Scicurious, let me introduce you to Abel PharmBoy and gg”….just felt natural. Pseudonyms, like names, are just strings of sounds we use to tag people.
