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'.

Public engagement - a waste of time? Storify by @lulucrumble

I'm reading through @lulucrumble's Storified collection of tweets from yesterday's on-Twitter discussion about science communication and public engagement - bit of a shame I missed most of it really as it's interesting, and the discussion is still happening on Twitter.

The main thing I don't like about Storify, and the New Yorker I think, is having to click 'next page' at the end to see the next lot of tweets. I presume this is to save loading the entire lot at once. However I'm prepared to wait for them all to load so that I can scroll through continuously. I have a feeling that embedding the Storify into a blog allows this to happen. As the post loads all the tweets should load too - let's find out.

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).
