On May 9, 2008, I'm going to be speaking at the 33rd Annual AAAS Forum On Science And Technology Policy in Washington, DC. I am part of the last plenary session alongside Seed's Editor-in-Chief Adam Bly and Dr. Anthony Crider, co-founder of the SciLands, a science continent in the Second Life world. Our discussion will be about Science and the New Media, so I've decided to bring our readers with me. That's right, the conversation begins here at The Intersection... Readers, I Want You! I invite readers to comment with thoughts on the topic and I will be showing this post at the Forum. For ideas, consider these questions from the program:

* New media addressing S&T issues - what/where/who are they? * Who do they see as their primary audiences? * What do they try to convey (or try not to convey)? * What do they see as missing from the current dialogues on S&T and policy? * How are they addressing those elements? * What are the new media missing?

So, don't let me down! Let's get a good discussion going about these questions and I encourage you to contribute your own ideas as well. Together we'll build a constructive dialogue and I'll write about the reaction afterward.
