ScienceOnline2010 – introducing the participants

scienceonline2010logoMedium.jpgI have to say I am myself enjoying doing these introductory posts. I get to Google people, see who they are and what they’ve been up to lately, discover stuff about friends’ past careers I did not know, find them (and follow/subscribe/friend) on Twitter, FriendFeed and Facebook, and generally get all starry-eyed about the amazing group of people who registered for the conference and who I can’t wait to see. So, without further ado, here are a few more of them:
Beth Beck is the Outreach Program Manager for Space Operations at NASA Headquarters in Washington DC. And no, she is not a rocket scientist, she is a political scientist. She blogs and tweets. At the conference, Beth will co-moderate the session Broader Impact Done Right.
Henry Gee is a Senior Editor at Nature, founder and editor of Nature Futures, columnist on BBC Focus, editor of Mallorn (journal of the Tolkien Society), writer and editor of several science and SF books, a compulsive twitterer as well as a blogger both on I, Editor and The End Of The Pier Show. And a dear personal friend.
Connie St Louis is the Director of the Science Journalism MA at City University, London. She is an award-winning freelance broadcaster, journalist, writer and scientist, noted for her work at BBC Radio 4 and BBC World Service. At the conference, Connie will co-moderate (together with her student Christine Ottery) the session How does a journalist figure out ‘which scientists to trust’?
Michael Nitabach is the Assistant Professor of Cellular & Molecular Physiology at Yale School of Medicine, the Interdepartmental Neuroscience Program and the Department of Biological and Biomedical Sciences at Yale. And he is a colleague – an awesome chronobiologist.
Robin Ann Smith is the alumna of the Duke University Writing Program, a freelance science writer, and the Communications Manager (and official twitterer) at the National Evolutionary Synthesis Center (NESCent). At the conference, Robin will do a demo presentation of NESCent online efforts.
Josh Wilson is the Reference Librarian for Physical & Mathematical Sciences at the D.H.Hill library at NCSU, my alma mater. Josh blogs and tweets as well.
