Science Online '09: Science Fiction on Science Blogs

Blogging can be a lonely thing. I get a few comments and some feedback, of course, and I comment on other people's blogs too, but it's not really the same as having a face-to-face conversation. That's why I'm excited I'm going to be attending ScienceOnline09, an annual science blogging conference that meets in January at Research Triangle Park, North Carolina.

Speculative fiction writer Stephanie Zvan and I will be co-moderating a session on "Science Fiction on Science Blogs". We are in the early stages of hammering out what exactly we'll be talking about, and suggestions are welcome. If you are interested, you can add to the discussion of our session on the ScienceOnline'09 wiki.

I hope I get to meet some of you there! (See who else is attending)

You can read some of Stephanie's fiction here.

Peggy, it's about time you spread your wings and expertise. Moderating this forum is right up your alley. You and Stephanie should make a good team!

Best wishes. You should have fun at the conference and meet some really neat people.

You just made me realize that I've been reading your blog for months now, and I've failed to leave any comments. How rude of me, I must strive to do better. I LOVE this place, keep up the great work!

Thanks for the nice wishes! I'll post an update when I know more details.

Bill: no obligation to comment - I'm pretty much a lurker on other blogs myself.
