I should mention that I’ve been asked to help lead a discussion at ScienceOnline ’09 about the History of Science and blogging, along with the excellent bloggers Scicurious, Brian Switek, and John McKay. ScienceOnline ’09 is the third-annual scienceblogging conference, to be held in January. I’m delighted to be participating and sharing the session with such excellent bloggers!
A wiki page has been started to get the discussion going before the meeting. Taking a cue from Brian, let me ask the readers here: is there anything in particular that you think should be covered in a History of Science and blogging discussion? I can definitely give an impassioned argument as to why I think it is important, and also give oodles of tips about what I do to prepare a science history post, but I’d be interested to hear what other people might think are important topics to cover.
