New NASA Science Website

NASA has just unveiled a new skin for it’s Science website. The site is serves as the public face for all the nifty scientific stuff done down at NASA central. I have to say the thing look pretty spiffy. There’s lots of useful links right off the front page, including a section for kids and for ‘Citizen Scientists’. I might start adding that title to my name… Frank, Citizen Scientist!

AAG New Media Panel

We have pulled together the third annual AAG New Media panel which will take place on Thursday April 17 at 5:20 in Boston. As this is a panel we hope it will turn into more of a conversation between panelists and the audience of where social media fits into Geography and Geography Education. We will be in “Grand Ballroom Salon H” with a great group of panelists including:

  • Susan Vajoczki – McMaster University
  • Patrick Abbott – Kansas State University
  • Susan J. Bergeron – West Virginia University
  • Adena Schutzberg – Directions Magazine
  • Jesse Rouse – WVU

I have also invited a few other new media types, but I’m not sure if they will be able to make it. After the session some of us might head out for a bite to eat depending on what other commitments we all have. See you there!
