Science Studio has a brand new website
(what is it? Remember these: Introducing: Science Studio -- The year's best science multimedia
and Science Studio update - and a new challenge
). So, start nominating
your favorite (or your own) podcasts and videos!
Last week I spent in Canada. First I went to Ottawa where I was one of the keynote speakers at the annual OCIB Symposium
, organized jointly by biology graduate students from Carleton University and University of Ottawa. On the second day, I enjoyed some wonderful oral and poster presentations by students, and managed to see a little bit of the beautiful downtown of Ottawa.
Then I took a train to Toronto, where I gave another talk at York University (see announcements by John Dupuis
, Glendon Mellow
, Larry Moran
, Jesse Rogerson
and Edward Fenner
). Both talks were (very losely) based on an old post of mine - The line between science and journalism is getting blurry....again
- but updated for the 2013 environment.
After the York talk, we had the first inaugural Toronto Science Tweetup
(search Twitter for #TORsciTweetup), big and rowdy and loud, which will hopefully become a monthly fixture. During the inter-weening weekend, I spent a day at Niagara Falls with an old friend of mine - a place my father visited in 1966 and always talked about, so this was, in a sense, my homage to my Dad.
I was quoted recently in Raleigh News & Obeserver
(which does not quote me from an interview, but from this blog post
) and in The Herald (Everett, WA)
, on two completely diffent topics.
Next - New York City again May 23-24 or so. Then SciFoo
