History of science at ScienceOnline ’09!

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.

    How about the problem of “textbook cardboard”?

  2. That’s actually a good idea for discussion (though I had to go look through your posts again to remind myself what it meant!).
