Stuff I showed on my panel at AAAS

Since I don't do PowerPoint but use the Web for presentations instead, and since the recordings from AAAS are not free (yes, you can buy them, I won't), and since some people have asked me to show what I showed at my panel there, here is the list of websites I showed there. I opened them up all in reverse chronological order beforehand, so during the presentation itself all I needed to do was close each window as I was done with it to reveal the next window underneath.

I started with to explain the new interactive, collaborative methods in science journalism we discussed there.

Then I showed this series of tweets:

I then showed how I filter my Twitter stream to eliminate much of it and only get to see what people I trust deem important:

I pointed out that some people got jobs on Twitter:

Finally, if one gets a book published, there is nobody organizing the marketing and the book tours any more, so I showed how Rebecca Skloot organized it herself, by tapping into her online community:
