Twitter Science / Publication / Conferences ?

Colleagues/

I Am Greatly Interested In Learning Of Any / All Formal (or Informal) Initiatives That Have Incorporated Twitter (Or Similiar Mobile Features And / Or Functionality) Within Science (And / Or Technology) Projects, Publications And / Or Conferences.

The Question Of The Day Is ...

To What Extent Has Mobile-Originated Content Been Formally And / Or InFormally Incorporated Into Conventional Scientific / Technological / Medical (STM) Activities / Practices / Venues.

Please Post Any / All Items Or Comments

As Comments On This Blog Entry.

Thanks For Your Assistance.

WHY? Why would science ever NEED twittering? That's not how science WORKS.

Probably some people note down scientific ideas in their smart phones and maybe the especially keen and computer-apt have rigged up systems to notify them via txt message when an experiment completes or something, but science as a whole doesn't fit into a 2 inch screen.

So just no no no no no no no.

We are using Twitter in the 7 SENAED - Seminário Nacional ABED de Educação a Distância, or Brazilian Seminar on Distance Education, organized by the Brazilian Distance Education Association. The Seminar will be online, from May 23 to 31, so for a while we are using it as a source of information, although only today people will be officially informed about it. From May 23 to 31, one or two presenters will be using Twitter to debate some subjects with the followers, besides it being used to announce upcoming activities during the event.

A couple of months ago Henry Ford Hospital used Twitter in the OR. Here is a link to the article.

E-Learning Consortium of Colorado used the hashtag #elcc to tweet their recent conference.

We placed table tents at registration and on the dining tables to let people know about it.

I am a management consultant, specializing in knowledge management.

I post citations to newly-published scholarly articles, conference proceedings and books that will be of interest to knowledge workers. (I scan the contents of over 10,000 journals. My commitment to *followers* is to try to post a citation within 24 hours of receiving its release notification.)

Journal/database subscribers may download material.

Non-subscribers may obtain considerable benefit from:
a) reading the abstract
b) contacting author(s)
c) browsing for respective author(s) organization(s)
