Three Ways To Get Involved With ScienceOnline NOW To Make A Difference In 2013

Since our founding in 2008, we’ve been big proponents of ScienceOnline and one of our major goals is to bridge science bloggers and companies to make the industry more robust. This movement represents a sea change in many areas of science and so the revolution feels more like a glacier melting than a waterfall. With the conference approaching at the end of January next year, there are at least three ways you can get involved to make a difference. Sponsor the ScienceOnline conference. The digital influencers you’re so anxious to engage will be at ScienceOnline in North Carolina or watching the conversations via Twitter, etc. By sponsoring, you’ll be reaching them as well as helping a good cause, as better science communication positively impacts the industry and us all personally.

Who’s Talking About ScienceOnline? Interactive Map Of 1000 #Scio13 Twitterers

View Larger Map We’re a big fan of ScienceOnline, the yearly conference which brings together bloggers, journalists, educators, and anyone interested in the great science that is being done online. With the help of some other enthusiasts in Southern California, we are forming a local chapter and will host some events in conjunction with the San Diego Biotechnology Network (follow @sciosocal for updates). We wanted to find local Twitterers who might be interested in this endeavor, and analyzed around 5300 Tweets from about 1300 people using the hashtag since December of last year (even though the conference does not take place until January 2013, the hashtag is used to continue the conversation year round). We were able to find and map the location of a little over 1000 of the Twitterers, and they are shown in the interactive map (see a little more ‘how to’ information here). View the map on Google to see an alphabetized list as well. Each person Tweeted #scio13 at least once, and since we’re just over 1000 people, the limit for Google Maps, you can download the KML file and view it on Google Earth if you’d like to see the last few (sorry Z’s!).
