In addition to being a member of New England Science Writers and the National Association of Science Writers I'm also proud to be a part of the Science Online Community. I attended my first Science Online conference in January 2013 but you don't need to attend a conference to be a part of the group. Just by joining the conversation that happens online to talk about how to communicate science you can be a part of Science Online.
You can read more about my conference experience in this post, but basically it was so inspiring that I ended up bringing the scio spirit back to Boston with me. Since then, I've been working with Haley Bridger and Alberta Chu to get a regional Science Online Chapter started here in Boston, which we've tagged on twitter as #sciobeantown.
If you want to know more about Sciobeantown, come to one of our events. We'll be holding monthly gatherings to mingle, network, eat, drink and discuss various science communication content. You can also check out the Sciobeantown website, and be sure to follow our twitter account @sciobeantown (which I run, so really if you tweet to that account you're just talking to me.)
If you'd like to be on our mailing list sign up for our google group here, and please let me know if you have any ideas (or want to volunteer) for sponsors and speakers. Science Online is essentially crowd sourced, the members make the agenda so we want to hear from you, please let us know what kinds of events and topics you'd be interested in attending and learning more about. Of course, if you have any questions don't hesitate to ask!
