Science Online Together 2014: Who are all the librarians? Who are all the Canadians?

Feb 26 2014 Published by under Canada, librarianship, scholarly publishing, scio14

I'll be at Science Online Together for the next few days. I missed last year so I'm really looking forward to getting back into the Science Online swing of things.

As is occasionally my habit, I'll be listing here some attendees that are either Canadian, librarians or, in a few select cases, both. I'm adding websites and Twitter handles in the lists, but only if they're included in the directory listing.




Jenny Ryan has this Twitter list which picks up a few that I missed. Thanks!

Of course, I've probably missed a few librarians and/or Canadians either by mistake or because I can't tell from the information in the directory listing. If I've missed you, please feel free to add your name in the comments.

As a note, Genome Alberta, Canadian Science Publishing, and are organizing a Thursday evening "Meet Some Canadians" dinner as one of the Dine Arounds. It's at the Tir na nOg pub. Canadian and non-Canadians alike are all welcome, although we may not be able to promise that there won't be any Olympic hockey related bragging.

    Dear John,
    Hello-- I just took a look at your blog and immediately felt that twinge of excitement when I meet someone else passionate about math and science-- not to mention Canadian! I am a teacher and author. My latest books have to do with science and math-- and food. The first in the "Eat Your Homework" series (ages 6-10), EAT YOUR MATH HOMEWORK: RECIPES FOR HUNGRY MINDS, combines fun math topics like patterns and probability with math recipes such as Tessellating Brownies and Probability Trail Mix. The next in the series, due out this August, is titled EAT YOUR SCIENCE HOMEWORK: RECIPES FOR INQUIRING MINDS. The recipes and concepts in this next book include Sedimentary Pizza Lasagna (geology), Density Dressing (properties of Matter), and Atomic Popcorn Balls (atoms and molecules). I hope that by now your taste-buds are tingling!
    I am wondering if you would like to do a review of either or both books, or if I may contribute to your blog? Review copies are available now for the math book and I'd be happy to send you a copy of the science book when it becomes available in late April. I would be delighted to jaw more on the topic of getting kids interested in math and science at an early age, so please do reach out. I look forward to hearing from you soon.
