TALKFEST - Science blogging

TALKFEST - Science blogging

Thursday 15 July 2010
18:00 - 20:30
Charles Darwin House, London


This Talkfest-branded event focused on science blogging in the UK. An array of panelists discussed modern trends in a format that provided the template for turning Talkfest into a regular series.



During registration we asked people for the names of their favourite science and non-science blogs. This list is available here.


For more background on the idea behind the event, see here.
