First day at ScienceOnline 2012 and awoke to a rooster crowing. Either I was dreaming, in a time warp and back on my grandpa’s farm, or I’m in North Carolina. You decide.

Roosters crowing at 6am wasn’t the most interesting thing to me this morning though. It was the stats about the Scio12 attendees posted on Scio12’s Website. While I was not significantly surprised by the higher number of female attendees given I have encountered more female bloggers and writers on Twitter, I was surprised by the number of new attendees. You (and by you, I mean me) always think you’re the only one who is the new gal. It’s nice to know I’ll be part of a larger group than expected of newbies walking around in a zombied-out state from one activity to the next. By tonight’s reception though, I figure we will be walking around like old pros….that is, until the rooster wakes us all up again at 6am the next day…
