I'm at the Science Online conference this week in Raleigh, North Carolina. SciO brings together scientists, bloggers, and journalists to talk about communicating science to the public, how we screw it up, and how we can do it better. You can follow along at the #scio12 hashtag. I'll be live tweeting from the sessions I attend and there will be a lot of really cool discussions about science education and science communications that I know a lot of you will be interested in.

    At the risk of sounding a wee bit grumpy, I think twitter is a good example of getting it wrong. Far as I can tell, intelligent discourse about complex topics can’t easily be fit into 140 characters.

    I know McLuhan is a bit out of vogue now, but I think the time of twitter is perhaps a good time to dust off the old volumes…
