Saturday, this Saturday Jan 20, is the Science Bloggers Conference here in Murphey Hall. There is room for one more as of this writing. Sign up or end up on the Waiting List. The folks have already signed up look great and the collection of the Best of the Science Blogs which Bora edited will be there too.
Then on Tuesday, I’ll be speaking about contributor-run digital libraries at Duke’s John Hope Franklin Center’s TechTuesdays on Tuesday January 23. We’re delaying the start of the talk from the regular TechTuesday time — starting at noon:30. The announcement is below and on the ISIS TechTuesday site. I’ll be creating a wiki entry for the talk to which you may add stuff if you like and/or you can leave comments on what I should be saying to this post.
