If you missed this one, catch up with the Livestream and Storify, and make plans to join the next conversation on May 14!
 
Just posted the Storify of our kickoff event! Relive the magic while you count down to the next +ScienceOnline events: April 19 is launch of both +scienceonline Vancouver and +scienceonline Bay Area

This is great starting place, particularly with the emphasis on "non-techy" types. William highlights #rstats as a key tool. What others are must-haves?
 
No mention of #rstats but a good intro to data viz tools for non-technical types.

Announcing The SciLingual Hangout (On Air)! Your chance to chat with Science!

Monday, March 26th @ 6 PM PDT

Has this happened to you? After reading a book, watching a movie, or listening to a TED talk, the thought hits you, “How great would it be to have a moment to sit down, have a glass of wine, and simply talk with all of these wonderful, idea-generating people?”

You’re not alone. +Liz Neeley and I have thought the same thing and figured with the help of G+, we could make it happen!

Folks, I am very proud to introduce one of the projects that Liz and I have been putting together for the last couple of months – The SciLingual Hangout In these Hangouts, we’ll be talking with science communicators, authors, videographers, scientists, and all sorts of interesting people. This is their chance to sit down, have a glass of wine, and chat in a relaxed atmosphere.

We’ll have a Hangout On Air once a month, starting next week!

That’s right, on Monday, March 26th @ 6 PM PDT you will have a chance to chat with:

Science Awesomer, +Joanne Manaster
Astronomer, +Pamela Gay
Universe Today Publisher, +Fraser Cain

We’ll be discussing the many ways that online video can be a platform for science communication and education. From YouTube EDU (http://goo.gl/Ci8RH) , Joanne’s science vids on “Joanne Loves Science”(http://goo.gl/EyQte) , Pamela’s CosmoQuest Science Hour, and Fraser’s AstronomyCast Hangouts, online video is becoming an easy way for people to digest scientific information.

Do you watch scientific videos online? Is it better or worse as a teaching medium for you? What qualities make a “good” scientific video?

If you have any questions you’d like to ask, share this post, save the date and watch our hangout!

How should scientists engage with the public? Use a variety of ways to engage (including, maybe, social media).

Kind of like: do you floss first, or brush your teeth first, and do you really need toothpaste? Answer: just brush your teeth, however works for you, just do it!

Of interest to you guys - both for the content itself and as an experiment in the different ways we can bring science into the social media world

After a great kickoff of +Science Online Seattle we're looking forward to next month, where the topic is big data and data visualization.

U of Washington Computer Science PhD student +Katie Kuksenok recently corralled her favorite online data viz tools, including both apps and principles. We hope you'll check it out!

Science outreach, what's in it for ME? How about funding for your research! Sign up for the 2nd round of the #SciFund Challenge during the month of March.

Social media may help your success: In the last SciFund Challenge, funding was correlated to likes on facebook http://figshare.com/articles/SciFund_Success_and_Social_Media/90818

We're on the hunt for an 'impact factor' service like Klout, but with a transparent algorithm. Any leads?
