Do you have facts that could could clear up confusion or an informed opinion to share? Do you know the question whose answer would help you and others better understand the issue? How do you contribute your knowledge and expertise to your community? Social media is supposed to make it easy but how to you pick between Facebook friends, twitter hashtags, google circles, blog posts and countless other online options?

If you are interested in seeing what happened, check out the livestream.

In the 2nd ScienceOnlineVancouver event on Tuesday, May 15, [updated — it’s on the 15th, not the 17th] you’ll meet people who successfully use social media to communicate with their professional communities, Eric Michael Johnson (@ericmjohnson, primatediaries.com) and Raul Pacheco-Vega (@raulpacheco, raulpacheco.org) They’ll describe what they do, what works (and what doesn’t.) You’ll have a chance to ask questions and share what you know, whether you’re a professional blogger or just-got-a-twitter-account-now-what-do-I-do?

By popular demand, the event will start at 6:30 pm with a chance to mingle with your friends, new and old and we are investigating ways to have alcohol available. The discussion will begin at 7:00 pm. In accordance with the liquor license, please RSVP for the event, even right up to the last minute.

This month’s raffle: your very own Galileoscope telescope, complete with tripod and carrying case. For the price of a ticket, you could see the rings of Saturn and the moons of Jupiter!

All proceeds from drink sales and raffle tickets are used to run ScienceOnlineVancouver events, including materials and the licenses.
Write us your thoughts. Play nice.

I was looking forward to it, but I can’t make it Tuesday. I guess social media is designed for people who change things last minute 😉 Hope it goes well.

Sorry guys, I need more than 1 day advance notice — can’t make it tomorrow I’m afraid. Lesley

If this has been rescheduled from May 17 to May 15 you should update this event page with the right date, otherwise you’ll have people showing up on the wrong day.

Thanks, Fred! I think we’ve found all the refs to 17 now. 15′s a nicer number, anyway!
