Minnow at the Science Blogging Conference

Minnow's big adventure this weekend was attending the 2nd Annual NC Science Blogging Conference (and staying with one of my college roomies).

In the morning she went to the discussion on ethics in science blogging, lead by the incomparable Janet Stemwedel. Afterwards she had a little bonus discussion.


Then Minnow participated in a panel on Gender and Race in Science: Online and Offline, moderated by the excellent Zuska. Other panel participants were Karen Ventii of Science to Life and Pat Campbell of Fairer Science.

After a great box lunch, Minnow went to Dave Munger's session on Building Interactivity into your Blog. But despite the title, she fell asleep (sorry, Dave). So no pictures were taken.

The day concluded with a great panel discussion on Framing Science (with panelists Jennifer Jacquet, Chris Mooney, and Sheril Kirshenbaum) and an inspiring talk by Jennifer Oulette of Cocktail Party Physics. And what's even more exciting is that all day long snow was falling and the North Carolinians were freaking out about the weather. Fortunately, it was only a short drive back to our friends and our nice warm beds.

Minnow thought it was great to meet so many new people and is already looking forward to next year.

There is something about being on scienceblogs.com that is different - and bigger - than just being a science blogger on a prominent platform. Something that others are still trying to figure out and emulate. And that is the friendship that we have all developed between us. We are like a big…
Whew, what a day! I've been to the Second NC Science Blogging Conference, and I've had a blast. The best part was actually to meet loads and loads of blogging friends whom I'd only seen in pictures. Amazing to actually meet them, hug or shake hands, talk and laugh. I even listened in as Bora…
Karen Ventii is one of my SciBlings - her blog is Science To Life. At the second Science Blogging Conference in January she co-moderated a panel on Gender and Race in Science: online and offline, relevant to the discussion of racial diversity that is ongoing here on Scienceblogs right now.

Minnow is unbelievably adorable! Quite an accomplished blogger (even a bloggy celebrity), the presence at the Conference was a natural fit and Minnow's great timing in voicing repostes to other participants was delightful. Oh, and of course, so nice to see you, too ;-)

Meeting Minnow was great as was listening to her mom. Thanks ScienceWoman for your thoughts and ideas.
