Day one of ScienceOnline 2012 and what have I learned?
I learned that Bora Zlvkovic is a hugger. Hug him. He wants you to.
Keynote speaker, Mireya Mayor has a most envied job she does with great gusto and grace, and with 4 kids in tow!
- Dr.Wicked’s Write or Die! — essential to scare you into just DOING IT!
In a joint session by Scicurious and Kate Clancy, I learned that Scicurious has a great stage voice and does not need a microphone. Further, she got a room full of science bloggers to yell out *penis.* I was forced to write (seriously, because Kate said she would call on people who weren’t writing!) about the risks I take in my writing and blogging. I learned a lot about my writing and that of the other bloggers. Very eye opening and a good question to ask yourself, writer or not.
It was a great first day and I’m exhausted, but refuse to go to bed and miss out on open mic night at Napper Tandy’s where featured acts are: “My Pee Story,” “Songs in the Key of #DrunkSci” and “I’m Sapiosexy and I Know it.”
Pete Seeger would be proud…
