SCIENCE ONLINE VANCOUVER #1
Where do you get your science?
Practically every day, the internet gives us another option for finding scientific information. In addition to peer-reviewed journals and mainstream media, we now read blogs and wield heaps of social media tools like Twitter, Google+, Facebook, Pinterest, and YouTube. More sources publishing more content more frequently! How do we keep up? How do we know where to go for relevant, accurate science?
Our speakers, UBC microbiologist and #arseniclife investigator Rosie Redfield, a local reporter and a mediator/moderator will ignite a conversation about finding science online.
A little bit more about our panelists:
- Rosie Redfield – Named Nature’s most influential person of 2011, this associate professor of microbiology at UBC hit science fame through her blog RRResearch disputing NASA’s claim life exists in arsenic.
- Lisa Johnson - Multiplatform journalist with a keen interest in environment and science stories. She enjoys digging, storytelling, and finding context in breaking news.
- Anthony Floyd – aerospace research engineer with a PhD in Civil Engineering from UBC. Although strictly a digital immigrant, Anthony grew up with technology as technology grew up. He is quite active in social media. Anthony’s a proud dad to two boys, year-round bike commuter, opinionated political observer, and Maritimer-in-exile.
