Science Blogs and Talking Dogs: Reflections on 17 Years in Social Media
Dr. Chad Orzel
Physics and Astronomy Department, Union College
In this talk I will discuss lessons learned about physics and science communication in the online world, drawing on my experiences since starting a weblog to discuss physics in 2002. This will include pros and cons of various media, including blogs, Twitter, and Facebook, and a discussion of the opportunities and risks these technologies offer for physicists interested in engaging with a broad public audience.
