The rush of material being posted in the wake of the ScienceOnline2012 meeting continues unabated.
Tweets from attendees faded as they travelled back to their homes, then surged as conversations picked up again and announcements of follow-up material started coming out.
The full list of blog posts about the meeting can be accessed from the wiki. I’d like to point to a selection of items I’ve found in my in-box that others might find useful or enjoy.* I’m not pointing out most of the blogs with personal thoughts and the like, good as many of these are, as there are too many – you’ll have to check the wiki or google ‘scio12’ (select blogs and in the last week in the left-hand side).
The full list of winners and showcased entrants from the Cyberscreen Science Film Festival at Science Online 2012 makes for interesting viewing. I showed one entrant in my previous Science Online-related post. I’ve shown the Grand Prize winner in the Maya animation section below.
For videos of the sessions (and other things), search for scio12 at YouTube.
A feature of this year’s follow-ons have been illustrative accounts of sessions. Scribing. I showed one in my previous post-ScienceOnline article. More can be found in a gallery of Perrin Ireland’s work hosted by Steve D, a Flickr slideshow, at Katie Ph.D., Perrin Ireland’s blog and elsewhere. Check ’em out.
Tanya Lewis has storified** the Women in Science Blogging session. 60% of this year’s attendees were women.
Some excellent portrait photos by Russ Creech show a few of those that attended the meeting, along with a few glimpses of scenes in the meeting.
There’s a wiki presenting reading material for the Genomic Medicine – From Bench to Bedside session.
I hope to deal with the ‘How to Make It As a Freelancer’ session separately later (as if I don’t already have enough blog articles in draft…) because it intersects with working as a consultant, another kind a freelance work.
There is undoubtably more to come. I may add the odd one in the comments that follow.
I said I wouldn’t cover blogs but what the heck, here’s a few blog posts to check out, too!
- Science Online 2012: small snippets from the awesomeness
- Science writing, in context
- Ed Yong’s Scattered Reflections about ScienceOnline 2012
- Are Some Science Stories Inevitably Political? (regards the You Got Your Politics in My Science session.)
- From The Writer’s Desk: the dangers of press releases expresses surprise at a statement that press releases are frequently not vetted by the researchers, which as triggered commentary from many sources. Is it true or not? (I couldn’t help but think this tweet is telling (and is inviting strong feedback): ’Huh. We don’t do this, I wonder who does? RT @ivanoransky: Press releases aren’t run by scientists: bit.ly/yOXmDz @cqchoi #scio12’.)
* That’s not saying anything negative about those I haven’t listed – I may have simply missed them.
** Yes, that is a verb ;-)
