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.
John McKay is a historian who’s been blogging on Archy for, like, forever. He is the undisputed blogospheric the-go-to person on all things related to mammoths, about which (the amazing history of how the world discovered and learned about mammoths) he is now writing a book (many parts of which have already appeared in draft form on his blog). In their spare time, John and his wife run a small business (I tested them and they are awesome) and use Twitter to promote it. At the conference, John will co-moderate the session An Open History of Science.
Tamara Krinsky is a person of many interests: she is a writer, the Associate Editor for DOCUMENTARY Magazine (where she also blogs), a movie blogger, a science blogger, a twitterer, and is probably best known as an actress (you could see her both in theater and on TV, including in Charmed, Seventh Heaven, Star Trek: First Contact and the Discovery Channel’s Shark Week). At the conference, Tamara will co-moderate the session Science and Entertainment: Beyond Blogging.
Rick Weddle is the President and CEO of the Research Triangle Foundation of North Carolina, the organization that runs and manages the 50 year old renowned Research Triangle Park. Research Triangle Foundation is one of the major sponsors of our conference, as well as a host of two events: the Friday morning Workshops will be held at the Park Research Center and the Friday night gala will be hosted by them at the RTP headquarters. Of course, the main venue (Sigma Xi), the hotel (Radisson) and several locations of Friday lab/food tours will also be inside the Park. You can follow Rick on Twitter as well.
Desiree Schell is the host of Skeptically Speaking, the skeptical call-in talk show. She is on Twitter as well. At the conference, Desiree will co-moderate the session Trust and Critical Thinking.
Christie Lynn Wilcox is a PhD student in Cell and Molecular Biology at the University of Hawaii. She is a marine scientist and a wonderful science blogger (as of recently, also here). She is also on Twitter.
Clifton Wiens is the Head of Research and Editorial Story Development for National Geographic Television. And yes, he is also on Twitter.
