ScienceOnline2011 – introducing the participants

As I do every year, I will do a series of posts introducing attendees/participants of ScienceOnline2011. You can find them all on the list, but it may help if you get them in smaller chunks, focusing on a few at a time.

Brian Switek is a freelance science writer and a paleontology research associate at the New Jersey State Museum. He has written articles on paleontology for a variety of popular and academic publications – from the London Times to Evolution: Education and Outreach – and he presently blogs at WIRED Science’s Laelaps and Smithsonian magazine’s Dinosaur Tracking. His first book – Written in Stone: Evolution, the Fossil Record, and Our Place in Nature – has just been published by Bellevue Literary Press. I interviewed Brian twice: in 2008 and just last month so you can see how much his life has changed in the meantime.

Martin Robbins is a scientist and writer. He blogs at The Guardian, runs The Lay Science group blog and he tweets as @mjrobbins. And I interviewed him recently.

Kaitlin Thaney, formerly of Science Commons, is the Manager of External Partnerships at Macmillan. She blogs at Kay and tweets as @kaythaney.
