Slides: Harnessing Social Media for Science


On Friday, I led a workshop at the Student Conference on Conservation Science at the American Museum of Natural History in New York City outlining some of the ways Scientists can tap into social networks. I’ll elaborate on these ideas in the coming days but I wanted to post my slides for reference. I had a terrific time talking with the students at the conference and in the workshop. Everyone was excited and I think we came up with some great ideas for future directions.

Please take a look at the slides and let me know what you think! I’ve tried to annotate them with captions that summarize some of what I was saying for each point. You’ll have to imagine all of the witticism and insightful ad libs sprinkled through the presentation on the day of.

The slides can be viewed here. They’ll be best viewed in Safari (big surprise Keynote plays best with Safari).
