Science bloggers in North Carolina

Category : mac and the internet

(corrected errors)Sat 20 Oct 2007 - On this rainy Saturday morning I feel quite sheepish. Last year, I gave a couple of talks in Duke University in North Carolina, USA - at the Nicholas School of the Environment and Earth Sciences (Durham) and the marine Lab (DUML) in Beaufort. I included a blog-evangelism bit in my talks but completely overlooked an existing community of bloggers over there!

BlogTogether is the community of bloggers in North Carolina. They have meetups in various cities and a LOT of science bloggers. In fact they are organising the 2008 NC Science Blogging Conference in the Research Triangle Park in January 2008 [link]

North Carolina Science Blogging Conference

Meanwhile, Science Blogs has become the mecca of science blogging, and now lists 63 blogs. I found because it mirrors some old evolution/devt biology blogs I used to read. One of the blogs is co-authored by Chris Mooney (The Republican War on Science) and Sheril Kirshenbaum, staff at the Nicholas Institute, Duke University, who recently highlighted the loggerhead paper in PloS. Was planning to use that in a "Human Impacts" lecture for Marine Biology and this reminded me to incorporate it.

The blogging talk was not in vain, my friends did blog. Pld timer senior professor Dan Rittschof started blogging (lost his password so he stopped, rats), he got his students to do likewise during their field trip to Singapore, and our facilitator and turtle biologist Catherine McClellan's class blogged from a struggling connection in Trinidad.

I just wrote to them about the conference; they can point students there.
