Powerful essay asking if it's possible for you and me to change the global system such that the horrible tragedy in Bangladesh, and many others, might not be in vain.
Are my hands clean? That urgent question, sung some years ago in the plaintive voices of the band Sweet Honey In The Rock, haunts me this week. As this horrifyingly tender image from the tragedy al...

The Return of the Super Science Circle

Okay, I'll admit, I made a mistake in retiring the Super Science Circle. I wasn't wrong; Communities are still the future and the best way to make friends here on Google+. But I realized that the Super Science Circle is simple and efficient way to get new people to see that Google+ isn't a ghost town.

PLEASE SHARE THIS POST... FOR SCIENCE!

When I was attending +ScienceOnline 2013, I must have helped dozens of people join Google+, and the first thing I had them do was import this circle. It's an invaluable tool for getting new people up to speed.

So, I just did a complete refresh on the circle. I examined every single member and judged them according to my two-part criteria:

1. Active in the last 30 days or so.
2. Regularly post on scientific topics.

If you know anyone who might make a good candidate for this circle, please let me know.

As always, import this circle into a new, temporary circle, and then you can refresh it when I share a new version.

DON'T FORGET TO SHARE THIS POST

With the punditry beating Big Bird and The Chair like dead horses, I'm ready to talk about something more substantial: what does the online world mean for the trajectory of our political discourse? I'm excited for this event!
 
Our October event, "#WINNING: the Science of Elections Online", is shaping up to be a fantastic conversation about how the Internet has infiltrated campaign strategies and voter behavior. We are fortunate to have Travis Kriplean, developer of the Living Voters Guide and other platforms devoted to promoting civil discourse around politics; and Elizabeth Wiley, a blogger for the UW Election Eye project with the Seattle Times, a KING5 digital media intern, and Flip The Media contributor. More panelists will be announced soon; we hope you will join us at the Pacific Science Center as we delve into the science of elections online!

This is wild. And just the other day I was told that, as a scientist, I receive a discount on homeowners insurance because we as a demographic take fewer risks.

For Science!

Want to be a better person? Spend more time thinking about science.

A new study suggests that scientists are more likely to have a strong moral compass than those outside the field.

That’s the implication of newly published research, which finds people who study science — or who are even momentarily exposed to the idea of scientific research — are more likely to condemn unethical behavior and more inclined to help others.

“Thinking about science leads individuals to endorse more stringent moral norms,” report psychologists Christine Ma-Kellams of Harvard University and Jim Blascovich of the University of California, Santa Barbara. Their research is published in the online journal PLOS One.

A discount for taking fewer risks. No wonder science is taking so dammed long to come up with solutions. . Without risk there are fewer and slower discoveries. .

Should be a great conversation. It will be livestreamed and live-tweeted, if you can't make it in person!
 
Blogs about science, written by both scientists and science writers, are some of today’s most popular outlets for learning about current scientific research and its relevance to daily life. And blogs are as simple to start as creating an online account. Yet there’s much more to science blogging than sharing the methods of your latest research project, and even veteran science writers have had to learn new skills when they decided to start blogging. What exactly comprises the art and discipline of science blogging? What is the benefit to blogging, for researchers as well as writers? Is the time and effort worth it? This #sciosea event aims to explore these questions with you, as we talk with science bloggers from within and outside academia. Join us and see why science blogging is worth your time!

Everyone is invited to this event, in real life or online!
 
Tonight's the night! We hope you will join us as we explore Science of Elections Online. Our panelists come from diverse backgrounds, each producing different ways to engage in political discourse online. Sean Munson developed Balancer, a plug-in to balance your political news intake. Travis Kriplean developed the Living Voters Guide, where people can come together to debate the issues. Elizabeth Wiley blogs for UW Election Eye, Flip the Media, and interns for KING5 news. It should be a great conversation, in person or livestreamed! RSVP at the below link:

Such an intriguing topic. Join us, in person or online!
 
What happens to your data, research, and online identity after you die?
For our fall kickoff event, ScienceOnlineSeattle will dig into the intricacies of data and social media archiving, intellectual property, virtual estate planning, and other issues at the nexus of science, the internet, and human mortality.

Join us in person, via a Google+ hangout, or on twitter with the hashtag #soSEA
Please be sure to RSVP at www.ScienceOnlineSeattle.org

I used to sweep dirt under the rug when I was a kid, hoping my parents wouldn't see and then I wouldn't have to actually put it in a dust bin. It's a great analogy for what we do to the ocean, thinking on one will notice.
This is such a wonderful piece of art that so beautifully conveys this issue with plastic pollution. I saw it on Facebook with no attribution and wondered who had created it. It is stunning. Finally, ...
