Two very, very important deadlines coming very, very soon!

First, we have 199 people registered for the Science Blogging Conference. The Sigma Xi space accommodates 200 and we have ordered food for 200 (coffee for more, to make up for the coffee flop last year) and swag bags for 200. Apart from the public list, we also have a list with a couple of anonymous bloggers as well as about a dozen of students who will be coming with their teachers. Thus, we will be closing the registration most likely tonight or tomorrow, so hurry up and grab that last 200th spot! After that, we will probably have a waiting list, but that is no guarantee (and makes it hard to plan your travel and stay that way).
If you are registered, now is the good time to:
1) find and exchange information about hotels, rides, etc. Will you have a car with you then and there? Please offer to give others a ride by editing that wiki page.
2) sign up for one of the remaining slots for the Friday afternoon (1pm – 4pm) Lab Tours by editing the wiki page.
3) sign up for one of the remaining slots for the Friday morning Blogging Skills Sessions, either the beggining blogging or advanced blogging session.
4) sign up for the Friday dinner by editing that wiki page.
5) sign up to help in some other way by editing the Volunteer page.
6) visit our Sponsors page to see who is making this all possible.
7) write a blog post about it and see what others have already written so far.
8) Go to the Program page and start adding your questions, ideas and comments to the individual session pages.
Second, the deadline for submitting blog posts for the 2nd Science Blogging Anthology is December 20th at midnight. Yup, just four more days. So, submit your best of the year here. There are more than 410 posts there already, and the 30+ judges are already reading them and rating them. Make sure your best post is there. Original poems and cartoons/comics are still in short supply.
