Stuff that occurs to me

All of my 'how to' posts are tagged here. The most popular posts are about blocking and private accounts on Twitter, also the science communication jobs list. None of the science or medical information I might post to this blog should be taken as medical advice (I'm not medically trained).

Think of this blog as a sort of nursery for my half-baked ideas hence 'stuff that occurs to me'.

Some links I need for later for session at SciCom12

On Tuesday I'm taking part in a panel session on Communicating Tricky Topics at the Science Communication Conference (#SciCom12 is the new hashtag) and wanted to add some links here before I put them into a more formal blog post...

The Quack Clinic checklist
- a great piece highlighting some things to be aware of when determining whether or not a clinic offering some treatment or other is likely to be a bit dodgy. The information in this link will be particularly relevant for one of the four discussion sessions, which is on unproven treatments.

Everything communicates, but is everyone a communicator?
- this is more about general (not science) communication within and from a charity, touching on the use of social media and intranets. While not specifically relevant to the session we're running there's always some overlap whenever anyone talks about comms.

Comment policy: I enthusiastically welcome corrections and I entertain polite disagreement ;) Because of the nature of this blog it attracts a LOT - 5 a day at the moment - of spam comments (I write about spam practices,misleading marketing and unevidenced quackery) and so I'm more likely to post a pasted version of your comment, removing any hyperlinks.

Comments written in ALL CAPS LOCK will be deleted and I won't publish any pro-homeopathy comments, that ship has sailed I'm afraid (it's nonsense).
