Science blogging is a niche sector for the blogosphere but a significant one.
Science bloggers generally try to cut through the crap and get to the core issues, whether they concern the latest research, controversial issues (such as evolution or stem cell research) or science policy.
So it’s great to see the third consecutive annual science blogging conference, held in Research Triangle Park, North Carolina.
Registration is full, but you can keep up on the (un)conference’s Web site: http://scienceonline09.com/
I am honored and excited to be participating as moderator for the Sunday session “Blogging102 – how to make your blog better” (see conference program) and also to lead a demo session: “How to put your story on a dozen networks, sites and services in 15 minutes or less.”
