SA Science Communicators - Science Blogging - Jan 18
Science blogging - who and why?
"Freedom of the press is guaranteed only to those who own one." A. J. Liebling of the New Yorker.
In the age of blogging, anyone can make themselves heard. Science blogs can communicate science in a way that few other media can. You can read about the latest research that you may not have access to without a journal subscription, or hear the daily gripes and grumbles of lab life, or follow detailed analysis of policy development or breaking news stories. The best part is blogging is open to anyone to give it a try and join the discussion. At this event we'll hear from several Adelaide-based science bloggers about why they do what they do, and where blogging fits in the spectrum of science communication.
Where: The Science Exchange, Exchange Place, Adelaide
When: Monday 18 January, 6.00pm - 8.00pm
