Tomorrow I’ll be talking in DC, live and live-streamed | The Loom

Tomorrow [I’ll be speaking in Washington DC at the Koshland Science Museum about communicating science in new media][1]. It’s going to be a retro-future kind of talk. For one thing, I think [Vesalius][2] was a great model for thinking about science in new media. He had a lot of things figured out 450 years ago that we’re just rediscovering.

Plus the semi-super-secret project I mentioned last week. I’ll explain that tomorrow morning.

You can join me at the museum for free, but you have to make a reservation in advance by calling 202-334-1201 or emailing ksm@nas.edu. [Or you can watch the livestream here][3], thanks to the folks at the American Society for Microbiology, which collaborates with the Koshland Museum. You can even ask questions via Twitter if you tweet them to @microbeworld or use the hashtag #koshland. We’ll be having a long Q & A session, and someone will be reading the questions from Twitter.

Here are [the details][1]:

Date: Thursday, October 14, 2010 Location: Koshland Science Museum Time: 6:45 PM to 8:00 PM 6:45 – 7:15 Talk 7:15 – 8:00 Discussion
