Nature Network Toronto Pub Night: Monday, January 26, 2009

From the Nature Network Toronto Forum:

There’s a pub night coming up! The theme of the evening is blogging.
As usual, it’s casual, but we’ve got a guest speaker, a report from the ScienceOnline09 conference, some science bloggers, and hopefully a hard copy of the new edition of Open Laboratory to browse through. The pub serves decent food, so come early and have dinner (and meet fellow Toronto Nature Networkers) before the talks start.


Have you ever thought that you’d like to start a blog, but wondered how to combine blogging with your work?

Toronto tech blogger (and “Accordion Guy”) Joey DeVilla will give a talk about how he successfully incorporated blogging in his life and work.

We’ll also look at the newest edition of Open Laboratory, a book collecting the best posts from science weblogs in the past year, and get a report from the ScienceOnline09 conference (held January 16-18 in North Carolina) to see some of the ways blogs are used in science.

Date: Monday January 26th 2009
Location: Fionn MacCool’s (181 University at Adelaide)
Time: 6 PM onwards (talks start at 7)
Contact: Eva Amsen eva@easternblot.net

There's a FaceBook event, of course.

It looks like it's going to be a great event and I look forward to seeing some of my GTA readers there. The ScienceOnline section will has the GTA bloggers who attended the conference talking about the experience: Eva Amsen, Michael Nielsen, me and possibly Glendon Mellow.

My apologies, I won't be able to make it this time! Familial duty calls.

Have a glass of Coke in my absence, won't you?

Michael isn't there either, so we have to do it all ourselves! We won't be the only science bloggers - Philip Johnson is coming - but we'll be the only conference attendees.
