Among the things I’m trying to finish tonight is an interview from a student in Miss Baker’s high school biology class in Maryland who will be attending ScienceOnline’09.
Anna has asked me some questions about this conference and why I go. I’m reminded that I first met Tom Levenson last year at this conference and we have maintained a friendly e-mail relationship. What strikes me in my interview with Anna is that Tom and I likely would have never met one another had it not been for blogs or this conference. Moreover, I doubt seriously that a journalist of Tom’s accomplishment and stature would have ever responded to my e-mails (much less respond to a meme tag!) if we had not met briefly last year and been kindred bloggers. My life has truly been enriched by so many of you, from bloggers to commenters to lurkers who sometimes e-mail.
So, while I can brag that I know Tom Levenson, let me direct you to his “Six Random Things” response. Some of you know, love, respect, and admire Tom. What an incredibly interesting human being. . .and a great bloggy bud.
