ScienceOnline2010 – introducing the participants

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.
Arikia Millikan is the fomer Overlord, a very tech and Web savvy blogger, writter and twitterer (and again). She is currently on a super-secret mission that gets her traveling around the country interviewing some fascinating people. You should read her recent interview here. At the Conference, Arikia will co-moderate (with Nate Silver) the session “Web Science: An examination of the World Wide Web and how it is transforming our society”.
Nate Silver is a statistics maven who became famous for amazingly precise predictions of electoral results on his blog FiveThirtyEight. He can also be found on Twitter.

Andrea Novicki is a biologist and the Academic Technology Consultant at the Center for Instructional Technology at Duke University Libraries where she runs their blog. She can also be found on Twitter.
Paul Jones has been blogging since back at the time when one had to build one’s own blog from scratch, know how to write code for it all instead of signing up for a free and easy-to-use service. He is the founder of, one of the largest “collections of collections” on the Internet and is a Web pioneer in general. Paul is a professor at UNC School of Journalism and Mass Communication and UNC School of Information and Library Science. He was on the organizing committee of the first two science blogging conferences, back in 2007 and 2008. Oh, and of course, he is also on Twitter.
