For those interested in science communication, a quick heads’ up: the World Conference of Science Journalists, moved from Cairo to Doha, Qatar, starts ’today’. (Where they are, that is!) Details of how to follow the event on-line can be found on a page at the US National Association of Science Writers.

Update: looks as if videos will be coming under the WCSJ2011 YouTube account. There are no presentations up (yet), but there are some interviews. I’d include one below as a taster, but the WordPress blog editor doesn’t seem to want to embed these, so you’ll have to make the trek over there yourself!
