Do you blog on or read about varied topics in science? Do you plan on being on or near North Carolina in mid-January? Maybe you should. That way you can be a part of the 2007 North Carolina Science Blogging Conference. This exciting event is presented as a free, open and public event for scientists, educators, students, journalists, bloggers and anyone interested in discussing science communication, education and literacy on the Web.

(The North Carolina Science Blogging Conference) will address a variety of issues and perspectives on science communication, including science literacy, the popularization of science, science in classrooms and in homes, debunking pseudoscience, using blogs as tools for presenting scientific research, writing about science, and health and medicine.

Of course, science superblogger Bora Zivkovic will be there (I wonder if he had anything to do with its location in the Tar Heel State…) Also in attendance will be various members of the SEED ScienceBlogs collective, other well-known science types, and bloggers, journalists, and educators of every stripe. Alas, I won’t be able to make this conference, which is being held Saturday, January 20, 2007, but I sincerely wish I could.
