NIST Social Media Day
I'll be participating in this NIST Social Media Day on December 11, 2008. Hopefully I'll be able to liveblog some of it on FriendFeed.
On December 11, Technology Services will sponsor a Social Media Day to explore web 2.0 technologies and how they can benefit our staff, in particular our scientists. Two keynote speakers, as well as a Guest Panel, have been confirmed for the event:
* Dr. Jean-Claude Bradley, Drexel University, will address "Open Notebook Science" in which experimental data is published in real time to blogs, wikis and other web tools. (10 AM, Red Auditorium)
* Emma Antunes (NASA Goddard), Scott Horvath and David Hebert (US Geological Survey), Don Burke (CIA), Gail Porter and Leon Gerskovic (NIST/PBA) and Doug Ward (USMS/NIST) will participate in a "Web 2.0 in Government" Panel Discussion (11 AM, Red Auditorium)
* Mr. Don Burke, CIA, will discuss "Intellipedia," the wiki created for federal intelligence agencies. (1 PM, Red Auditorium)
Other events feature the social media resources and tools used for the benefit of NIST scientists by the US Measurement System Office and the Information Services Division.
