Science Blogging Conference - who is coming? (Blogue Science-Presse)

i-77cb9830621cd0d12c254e60b30e9640-2008NCSBClogo200.pngThere are 97 days until the Science Blogging Conference. The wiki is looking good, the Program is shaping up nicely, and there is more and more blog and media coverage already. There are already 89 registered participants and if you do not register soon, it may be too late once you decide to do so (we'll cap at about 230). Between now and the conference, I am highlighting some of the people who will be there, for you to meet in person if you register in time.

On Blogue, largely modeled after the super-successful Seed Scienceblogs.com, of course!

In order to meet them, you know what you have to do: register! Registration is free.

Thank you! But let's be proud! Although Science! on blogue is much, much, much smaller than ScienceBlogs.com... we were there before you! :-)

Yes, indeed, Science! on blogue has been created in October 2005. A few months older! Who knows, maybe it's ScienceBlogs.com who've modeled after us... :-)

Really? That is cool. Sorry for the error - I thought you were much newer. Thank for pointing that out.
