Euro Sci Blog Con coming to London

Cue trumpets: Matt Brown has just announced that the Royal Institution in London will host a European science blogging conference later this year, exact date yet to be determined. More info here including a chance to weigh in on date selection. Two science blogging conferences in one year (the other one being the SBC in January): I have officially died and gone to heaven.

Hope to see you there (in London ...and heaven ...even though I don't believe in that ...not that there's anything wrong with believing in that ...if you go in for that sort of thing).

Yay! Yay! At last! A science blogging conference that I can go to easily. Without getting on a plane! Yay!

Of course, I need someone to fund me to come over, but I really, really want to go to this!

Surely Nature Networks and/or ScienceBlogs can find some money in their vast coffers to fly the all-important crazy uncle of science blogging to London.

It's a good point, actually. We should ask Matt about whether there might be some funding available for travel... after all, UNC forked over the dough to bring some of us to NC!

Matt from Nature Network here.

We'd love to fund airfares to get the best bloggers over. It all depends on sponsorship, as both ScienceBlogs and Nature are unlikely to release much money for this. We're working on that, but if anyone has any suggestions for sponsors, drop me a line at m.brown at nature.com

Ha ha - that's rather cheeky, Matt, to seek suggestions for sponsorship while commenting on Beagle Project home turf ...remember, we've got a Beagle to build! The Euro Sci Blog Con is a worthy cause, though, so I'll forgive you ...this time.
