I am a panelist at a one day conference being held in London, England. This conference focuses on the value of blogs to the public, to science and to scientists, and is being held at the Royal Institution of Great Britain on 30 August 2008. My fellow panelists are two amazing women whom I’ve admired for several years; Jennifer Rohn, editor at LabLit.com and Anna Kushnir, who works for Nature Network Boston and writes the blog, Lab Life, and the panel moderator is my friend and ScienceBlogs colleague who lives in London, Mo.
I need your help as I work on my contribution to this meeting, so I am asking you a series of questions I’d like you to respond to. The first set of questions (which I’ve asked you before, so you don’t have to answer them again if you’ve already do so) are; Do science blogs change public perceptions about science/scientists? How? (Please provide examples).
