Reminder: Tomorrow I'll be talking in DC, live and live-streamed

By Carl Zimmer | October 13, 2010 11:22 am

Tomorrow I’ll be speaking in Washington DC at the Koshland Science Museum about communicating science in new media. It’s going to be a retro-future kind of talk. For one thing, I think Vesalius was a great model for thinking about science in new media. He had a lot of things figured out 450 years ago that we’re just rediscovering.

Plus the semi-super-secret project I mentioned last week. I’ll explain that tomorrow morning.

You can join me at the museum for free, but you have to make a reservation in advance by calling 202-334-1201 or emailing Or you can watch the livestream here, thanks to the folks at the American Society for Microbiology, which collaborates with the Koshland Museum. You can even ask questions via Twitter if you tweet them to @microbeworld or use the hashtag #koshland. We’ll be having a long Q & A session, and someone will be reading the questions from Twitter.

Here are the details:

Date: Thursday, October 14, 2010
Location: Koshland Science Museum
Time: 6:45 PM to 8:00 PM
6:45 – 7:15 Talk
7:15 – 8:00 Discussion
