In 133 days from today, the greatest thing ever to happen to science communication will happen in coastal Louisiana. Welcome to OceanDotComm.
Intrigued? You should be.
Imagine a conference. No better yet, imagine a collaborative, storytelling, social media event. Four days spent with the most innovative minds in online science communication telling the greatest story every told.
Intrigued even more? Good.
This groundbreaking event will be the opportunity every science communicator has dreamed about. Do you miss the days of ScienceOnline Oceans and ScienceOnline? Every wanted to attend Google Camp? It kind of like those things but better.
I am of course tending toward hyperbole here but I really cannot contain my excitement for this event. After being in the online science communication game for nearly a decade and half, I longed for something just a little different. I wanted an event with other science communicators but instead of talking about science communication, I wanted to do science communication. A place to feed off the energy of colleagues, build my on skill set from seeing scicomm in action, and collaboratively reach toward scicomm innovation.
What do I need? You, the most energetic and dedicated science communicators using
social media from all over.
Your cost? Just simply get yourself here. We’ll take care of you the minute you get here with the best hospitality and food in Southern Louisiana. Chefs Mike and Jerome take it as personal insult if you leave our cafeteria hungry.
If you are a science communicator wanting to be a part of this collaborative effort to
take science communication into a new era, this is the event for you.
