Science Online 2010

This weekend, I attended the 4th annual science blogging conference, Science Online 2010.

This year, I won't go into the gory details, but Anton Zuiker and Bora Zivkovic put on yet another fabulous event, with scientists, science bloggers, journalists, educators, students and a lone food blogger converging on Sigma Xi for a weekend of informative sessions, fellowship and food.

For me the highlight of the conference had to have been meeting PZ Myers, author of Pharyngula, and arguably the world's most recognizable atheist. I approached him and introduced myself as a fan, but quickly explained that my Most Faithful Reader was an even bigger fan, so I needed both an autograph and a photograph to prove that I'd actually met him. He graciously complied with both requests.
