I've just started playing around with facebook, and thought it would be a great way to organize the whole Science Scouts phenom (even Nature picked up on our anthem, "Increase the N"). Anyway, we've had at least 150 calls for membership from the first boingboing nod, and with the second nod from boingboing (to coincide with additional badges), well, I'll admit, I'm having a tough time keeping up.
Hence the use of facebook, where all of this joining and dialogue can hopefully take care of itself. So, if any of you are on Facebook, I'd invite you to join, and would especially appreciate it if you let others know (either through your own networks, your own blog, whatever really). The link to the group is http://ubc.facebook.com/group.php?gid=2386691999
BTW: I do actually have some serious plans for the whole Science Scouts thing (which I may have mentioned here or there previously). Basically, I've been thinking about seeing whether some sort of public school drop-in science literacy center is possible, and the whole scouting aesthetics would work well in that regard (i.e. maybe real badges will exist one day!)
