When I first read the description, I thought, Sounds interesting but not for me, I'm afraid. See, it used to be called the NC Science Blogging Conference. And while I blog, and I'm interested in science, support good science education, read science blogs, etc., I'm not a science blogger. I'm a...I'm...I don't know what kind of blogger I am. If you figure it out, let me know.
Then half my blogroll registered--the half I haven't met.
That was when the stray enabling thoughts started popping up. I have done a guest post on ScienceBlogs, about science blogs. My blog does have a strong anti-woo undercurrent. All my friends are doing it. As a science fiction writer, I have a vested interest in promoting a love and understanding of science.
If it hadn't been for All my friends are doing it, I could have talked myself into it eventually. Sometimes I mistrust my own motives.
Then, today, they released Program v1.0.
Science Fiction on Science Blogs?
Science Fiction was the original source of excitement for many a scientist. How can a science blogger use Science Fiction to draw the readers in and explain the actual science?
Okay. I'm going. There are other sessions I want to attend, but that one, alone, sold me.
I'll see a bunch of you guys in January.
So much for impostor syndrome. I'm now moderating the science fiction session. Feel free to share ideas on what you want to see there.
