Like everyone else, I had tough choices to make – which session to go to out of four in each time slot! Of course, I spent a year planning, and talking with moderators/panelists/presenters and building each session over time. Now I wanted to see them all. How could I afford to miss any one of them?!
But choices had to be made, and I knew I could rely on the blogosphere to write about other sessions so I could get the idea of how the other stuff went. The blog/media coverage linkfest is growing fast (perhaps start at the bottom and work your way up, posting comments on the way and saying Hello to your new friends), there are ongoing discussions on FriendFeed and new pictures on Flickr.
Also, if you were there, please fill up this short form to give us feedback, so we can make next year’s meeting even better.
So, first thing in the morning, I went to You are a science blogger but you want to publish a pop-sci book? , moderated by Tom Levenson and Dave Munger. Am I thinking about writing a book? No, and this session re-affirmed that decision. I can edit books. I can throw blooks up on Lulu.com. I may even get a collection of essays put together one day. But book-length exposition is not my forte – I do not have the patience and discipline for it. Blogs are just a perfect medium for me – jumping in when the inspiration hits and not worrying when it doesn’t. But for those who are interested in writing a book, this session was chockful of good information, from how to pitch a proposal, to how to make yourself disciplined, to how to actually organize your thoughts for such an endeavor.
