OpenHelix Collaborative Conversations on ScienceOnline2010

Lots of people have already written lots of great posts about the ScienceOnline2010 unconference already – you can see a list of them from this post of Bora’s (Thanks, Bora, for collecting these!), with lots of good analysis and observation (including these: ).  I know I am a bit slow, but I just can’t let something so special go by without trying to add to the discussion.

For anyone not familiar with ScienceOnline, it is an unconference for anyone interested in science communication. I’ve blogged about it in the past, but I think the best descriptions of it come in posts by some of its organizers, Anton Zuiker, here, and Bora Zivkovic, here.

As I tried to figure out what I could add, it occurred to me that OpenHelix might have a cool dichotomy of ScienceOnline experiences. You see, I am a less-experienced blogger and I attended in person. Mary is a savvy blogger & she attended virtually. We are going to collaborate on a series of posts that cover various collections of topics associated with the conference. I hope this series is informative, interesting, and inspires you to join the conversation too!
