I’m speaking at Harvard Friday on science blogging

I am moving this to the top for use during my presentation.

The all-day workshop is titled, “Unruly Democracy: Science Blogs and the Public Sphere.” It is jointly sponsored by the Program on Science, Technology and Society at the Harvard Kennedy School, the Shorenstein Center at the Harvard Kennedy School, and the Knight Science Journalism program at MIT.

I’m on an afternoon panel. There is still a little space available. You can register here. Click on poster to enlarge (big PDF).
