  • Background
    Presentation by Mary Canady and William Gunn
    Slidecast: http://sdbn.org/sdsms
    ~85 in attendance (n=75 for poll)
    Web 2.0 ‘style’
    Interactive
    Encouraged participation
    ~15 brought computers & used wifi
  • Summary
    Utilized poll to drive content
    Covered Science Blogs more than anticipated
    ‘Want to know’ correlated directly with ‘existing knowledge’
    Covered friendfeed, even though interest low
  • Summary: Questions Asked
    How do I get a blog on Scienceblogs.com?
    On LinkedIn, should I automatically recommend someone who recommends me?
    Can you suggest a good RSS feed aggregator?
    Who owns the content on my blog?
    Questions about existing websites
    ResearchGate
    Spokeo
    Which blog platform is best?
    How aggressively should I promote myself online?
  • Follow Up
    Set up friendfeed room http://friendfeed.com/sdbn
    Only handful signed up, most already SM-savvy
    Set up Facebook Page http://tinyurl.com/sdbnfb
    ‘Bring mountain to Mohammed’
    They’re already on FB
    Will begin promoting to wider audience
    Not much Twitter adoption
    Have seen increased LinkedIn usage (anecdotal, personal observation)
    Will likely poll attendees before next event to gauge progress
