Science On Line 2010 is coming up

Not everyone can go to SoTen, but the participants in this upcoming bloggy/onliney conference are tying to keep the discussion broad and involve readers and commenters.

So you may want to go to his post and poke around.

Also, THIS is an important touchstone to some of the topics we’ll be discussing.
