Carnival of the Blue bloggers meetup at Science Online 2010

Several blue bloggers will be attending the Science Online 2010 conference in North Carolina this coming January. I'd like to propose a mini-meetup of past, present and future Carnival of the Blue participants sometime during the conference. Actually, anyone who loves the ocean is welcome to attend. I am open to ideas, but the first round is on Markme. I am also working on Carnival of the Blue schwag like buttons and T-shirts, so get your hopes up. Please leave suggestions in the comments or email them to me at dotoftheblue at gmail . com.

There will be several ocean-related sessions on the program, including:

  • Sat, 1/16, 11:30am – 12:35pm - Talking Trash: Online Outreach from the Great Pacific Garbage Patch – Miriam Goldstein, Lindsey Hoshaw, Annie Crawley and Bonnie Monteleone

  • Sun, 1/17, 9:00-10:05am - Broader Impact Done Right – Karen James, Kevin Zelnio, Miriam Goldstein, Rick MacPherson, Jeff Ives and Beth Beck

  • Sun, 1/17, 10:15 – 11:20am - Dive Into Your Imagination – Annie Crawley

  • Sun, 1/17, 10:15 – 11:20am - Darwin and the Adventure – The (i)Movie – Karen James and Kevin Zelnio

If I've missed anthing, please leave a comment and let me know.

Second round is on me, at the low low price of some naughty shanties! I think it would be awesome to have some schwag, and if I have any good ideas I'll drop you a line. Very excited!

Don't forget about the Southern Fried Scientist and myself- it would be great to meet you all in person finally.

Mark reports he will not be able to attend. This makes me sad. But bonus, both the Southern Fried Scientists will be there. And I've got my very own funny squid hat to wear this time.
