The winter meeting of the American Nuclear Society (ANS) will take place in Washington, DC, November 14-18, this year, at the OMNI hotel just off Connecticut Ave., NW, at Calvert.
While there is no formal session on blogging and social media in the program, several nuclear bloggers will be there. We plan to have an informal discussion about how social media, including blogs, instant messages, and web services are shaping public perceptions of the nuclear energy industry.
If you are interested in participating, please drop me at email at: djysrv [at] gmail.com Include an email address so that a broadcast notice can be sent to everyone once we firm up the details. Or use my Google Voice service 208-419-3881 to keep in touch.
See my prior report "Nuclear bloggers attain critical mass at ANS Atlanta" from the June 2009 ANS meeting.
Hope to see you there.
