Thank you for making ScienceOnline happen

Thank you for making ScienceOnline happen

Today marks the end of my role as a leader of ScienceOnline. (See this and this about my stepping away.) I have enjoyed this endeavor, especially because of the talented, smart, thoughtful and funny individuals we’ve met along the way. Indeed, it’s the people who have made ScienceOnline a joy and a success. It’s you who have made science fun for me. So, it seems appropriate to end my time with ScienceOnline by posting another installment in the annual Thank Them – They Made ScienceOnline Happen roundup. Each year since...

ScienceOnline Brain Postponed to 2015

ScienceOnline Brain Postponed to 2015

In an effort to make ScienceOnline Brain (ScioBrain) the best it can be, the Board of Directors of ScienceOnline have decided to postpone the conference until the summer of 2015. This decision was made in part to allow more time for fundraising. With more preparation, we will be seeking to increase participation in the conference and will be seeking a larger venue that can accommodate up to 200 attendees, and an institutional or university host partner as we have had for previous conferences. We are exploring two or three options, but welcome...

Board response to #sciosafe Open Letter

Posted by on Mar 20, 2014 in News | Comments Off

The ScienceOnline community is full of people who are passionate and inspired about our mission. We’re grateful for that level of commitment, and we know that it is also shared by the community participants from the #sciosafe discussion session that took place at ScienceOnline Together 2014. The ScienceOnline board received (as an email) an open letter from some of the people who had participated in that discussion (and others who joined their concerns online). We aim to answer the concerns of that letter here as thoroughly as possible, with...

ScienceOnline Together 2014: A view from the board

Posted by on Mar 7, 2014 in Uncategorized | 2 comments

Last week’s conference was my fourth time attending ScienceOnline, and my first time as a board member. For me, the conference remained the unique experience it’s always been — a convivial meeting ground for scientists, writers, students, and those passionate about science to exchange ideas about how their work can flourish online. But it’s also true that, as many of you know, it’s been a rough few months for ScienceOnline as both an organization and a community. After three women courageously stepped forward...

Books at ScienceOnline Together 2014

We may spend a lot of time online, but that doesn’t mean we don’t like to hold and read a physical book! Every year at the ScienceOnline conference we curate a list of science books (& a few apps/games) to highlight. Many of these are written in the previous year by attendees or are just about to be released. Some are books that dovetail with the discussions in our sessions. During the conference we have the opportunity to thumb through these books… and at the end of the conference everyone walks away with at least one...
