Science Online '09 - How was it.... via the internet?
(image c/o evoque's Flickr Photostream)
Short answer? Different from last time.
My local ISP exchange (apparently) had some problems over the weekend so I didn't manage to keep up with all the Live Coverage of Science Online '09.
Based upon my experience of attending last year's event virtually, I was slightly dissapointed by the lack of live-streaming this year. Two sessions (last year, ~ 9) were live-streamed, this time thanks to Cameron Neylon, one of which I caught live and the other just there now that I'm back online. (Back to those in a sec.)
There was some additional great instant coverage however via FriendFeed and Twitter (and also Flickr) which totally made up for the limited amount of live video.
So, here's a few vids linked to the Conference that are already online:-
1) Rough mix of the scio09 Flickr Stream from Friday featuring The Foo Fighters
Science Online '09 - Friday Shots from Graham Steel on Vimeo.
2) Open Access publishing: present and future - moderated by Bill Hooker and Bjoern Brembs. Discuss here
3) Reputation, authority and incentives. Or: How to get rid of the Impact Factor - moderated by Peter Binfield and Bjoern Brembs. Discuss here
(Specific embed codes don't appear to work for these as yet - as such, simply click on "On Demand", and then Science Online 09 to access the two videos)
