One year as cobloggers – yay!

It was one February ago, as in one year ago in February, that I abandoned my old pseudonymous blogging pad, and threw my lot in with the formidable Science Woman as a new coblogger. We were both working our ways through our first year of tenure-track, and I think each struggling a bit with keeping…

Another duplicate Seed magazine has arrived in my mailbox, and just in time another great Scientiae has been posted. Be the first one to identify the authors of the following three quotes in the comments, and I’ll send along the Universe in 2009 issue of Seed. It’s another cool issue focusing on the all awesome…

Blogroll Amnesty Day

The powers that be have declared this the third annual Blogroll Amnesty Day. According to those powers, we are supposed to be celebrate by linking to five lesser-known bloggers, and reiterating our liberal blogroll policy. First the blogs you should be reading…hard choices here, but I’m going to go with these: The Alternative Scientist -…

The February Scientiae is up at Fairer Science. Pat picked a great theme for this month’s carnival “Our Dreams for a Better World.” Go check out all the great ideas and then let’s get to work turning them into reality. And now for an exciting announcement, DNLee of Urban Science Adventures is kicking off a…

Another valiant attempt to combine motherhood, teaching prep, and watching the superbowl. Last year I made it to the third quarter before giving up (i.e., Minnow needed my attention for the rest of the evening). Let’s see if this year goes any better.

Thanks so much to Propter Doc for helping me moderate the Transitions session at ScienceOnline09. Our goal for the session was to draft a list of “best practices” for handling your online presence as you move through personal and professional transitions in the off-line world. Thanks to all the participants in the session for offering…

ScienceOnline 2009: Transitions

ScienceWoman and PropterDoc coordinated a session at ScienceOnline 09 that provided space for people to talk about different transitions they have blogged through, and how they navigated or negotiated those transitions. Both coordinators have gone through some job transitions which have manifested themselves in their blogs in different ways:

Snapshots of ScienceOnline09

The real world intervened (i.e., I got a nasty cold) with my best intentions to provide more thorough blogging coverage of the wonderful conference (hi everyone!). Maybe someday I’ll manage to work my thoughts from the sessions into coherent blog posts, but I know I’m pretty bad about promising and not delivering results (hello, the…

ScienceOnline09: The day wends on

So the day is getting on, and the bloggers are congregating around the plugs because their laptops are running out of juice, and I need to confess I’ve been taking notes all the time but I need to digest the notes more, and the wireless is flaky. So liveblogging is occurring offline, to be uploaded…

Open Access publishing at ScienceOnline 2009

So ScienceWoman and I will be sharing live-blogging duties today, at least until our batteries give out. We’re both starting at the Open Access publishing session, although I was also intrigued by Peggy Kolm’s session about science fiction on science blogs. I’ll have to catch up with her later. Also, please note: this is liveblogging.…
