Last week…Posted: November 9, 2010
… I was in Santa Fe, NM for a physics conference. What does that has to do on a euro-blog ? Not much – but a little bit. As some of the readers might know, the euro-blogo-sphere has been moving (a little) lately; particularly in France where the blog 27etc. has been launch, in conjunction with euro-apéros.
An engaged euro-blogger can not see that the euro-web is getting better when bloggers are getting together ; seeing a conference made me think: Could we do something like that for the Eurobloggers ?
The model of the DNP conference (the one where I was last week) is quite appealing to me. Let me describe it:
- The conference is held over about three days, with thematic parallel sessions
- Some speakers are invited while other submit their contributions
- There is a lot of coffee.
And on the side of course, there are a lot of opportunities for people to meet each other and discuss.
If nuclear physics can gather over 700 physicists, I bet EU can get quite a lot of bloggers together.
