Best of April

I posted 153 times in April.

First, importantly, I again committed scienceblogging in April, with the post Evolutionary Medicine: Does reindeer have a circadian stop-watch instead of a clock?.

April focus appears to be Twitter - hence two posts specifically about it: Twittering is a difficult art form - if you are doing it right and More on mindcasting vs. lifecasting.

Early in April, I introduced the Open Laboratory 2010 editor and made available the 'submit to Open Laboratory 2010' buttons.

A science journalist curmudgeoned herself, so I felt compelled to collect all the responses, in For the millionth time: bloggers vs. journalists is over!

I went to Duke to see the student rendition of RENT and wrote a long review of it afterwards.

We went to New York City, mainly to attend the #140conference, which I subequently blogged about, and also posted a lot of videos from the talks and sessions I liked the best.

Then, in the last week of the month, the biggie of all the Web conferences happened - the WWW2010 conference, right here in Raleigh NC. More about it shortly.

The more-and-more amazing interviews with ScienceOnline2010 participants are coming in - check out Christie Wilcox, Maria-Jose Vinas, Sabine Vollmer, Beth Beck, Ernie Hood, Carmen Drahl, Joanne Manaster, Elia Ben-Ari, Leah D. Gordon, Kerstin Hoppenhaus and Hilary Maybaum.

This is worth highlighting again: Scientists, engineers, experts - your Government needs you!

Work-related, I announced the PLoS ONE Blog Pick of the Month for March 2010, announced two new PLoS Collections and some more various PLoS news.

This blog got reviewed and so did the Open Laboratory 2009.

I collected in one place all of the Best posts on Media, (Science) Journalism and Blogging at 'A Blog Around The Clock'. I also collected a bunch of interesting links, mostly about journalism, and then posted some more a couple of weeks later. And another linkfest - Stuff I showed on my panel at AAAS.

I did some PR for Aidel's Vice store - Never go anywhere unprepared and Environmentally friendly chico bags - the proud sponsor of The 2010 Post with the Most blogging contest.

As you know you can see everyone who's registered for the conference, but I highlight 4-6 participants every day as this may be an easier way for you to digest the list. You can also look at the Program so see who is doing what. Anna Kushnir is a veteran of our conferences. She is the Senior…
Continuing with the tradition from last two years, I will occasionally post interviews with some of the participants of the ScienceOnline2010 conference that was held in the Research Triangle Park, NC back in January. See all the interviews in this series here. You can check out previous years'…
It is always interesting to dig through one's blog archives and see what happened when, or get reminded of a post one forgot was ever written ;-) So, here are some of the key posts on A Blog Around The Clock from 2009, chosen from almost 2000 posts that appeared here this year (which is MUCH less…
I posted only 127 times in May. Apart from many cool videos and various updates, I did blog about other things as well. I went to the WWW2010 conference and wrote my thoughts about it. Open Laboratory submissions are in full swing so I decided to post the old Prefaces and Introductions I wrote for…
