Journalism wrap-up from ScienceOnline2010

The complete list of blog/media coverage of ScienceOnline2010 is becoming huge (and also swiftly falling down and off the page), but I wanted to put up on top just a choice of blog posts that completely or partially cover the 'journalism and media track' of session at the meeting, as I found them very insightful. I know, there were many other topics at the meeting, and blog posts covering them, but I feel the discussion of science in the media and journalism was the leitmotif of this year's meeting and it brought about some of the liveliest sessions and most interesting posts (not just for participants, but for a much broader audience interested in science or science journalism or even journalism in general).

Prior to the meeting, I collected a lot of pertinent links in this introductory post, still worth, I think, bookmarking and checking out. A couple of other posts that appeared just before the conference are also included in the linkfest below, for completeness.

I have also put together a blogroll of everyone who attended the conference - if your blog is not on the list and should be (or vice-versa - it is here but you were not), please let me know.

And finally, I also lifted some quotes from various blog posts that say nice things about the conference ;-)
