Upcoming Science Hangouts
In the very near future we will be hosting a series of Science Hangouts On Air. Below we have listed several topics for HOA’s and possible panel members, but we would like to hear from you.
What topics should we discuss? Comment on the original post.
Do you want to contribute to one (or more) of the HOA’s? Fill out this short form (http://goo.gl/zcRSu) and let us know which HOA’s you would like to join.
1. Discussion on Open Access
Panel: William Gunn, Jonathan Eisen, ?
2. Funding Issues: Will Crowd Funding Work?
Panel: Tommy Leung, Chad Haney, Chris Robinson, Peter Liddicoat, Marco Casteleijn, ?
3. Using Google+ to Establish Interdisciplinary Collaborations
Panel: Gerd Moe-Behrens, Chris Robinson, ?
4. Psychedelics and the Science of Awareness
We also wanted to take this opportunity to let you know that Olga Garcia (i.e., our science cheerleader) will serve as moderator on many of the HOA’s coming out of the Science on Google+: A Public Database page. Thanks, Olga Garcia! If you haven’t had a chance to meet Olga, circle her and introduce yourself. She would love to hear from you, especially if you have ideas that will make G+ the go to place for SCIENCE!
Happy #sciencesunday to everyone!

Psychedelics and the science of awareness.
Added it to the list, bradley jones.
Daniel Simons – would you be interested in participating in a hangout on replications, publication bias, and meta-analysis?
An interesting approach for these is to set up a separate profile, then people can circle that profile and they get invitations to then and can auto add them to their Google Calendar. People who don’t want the invites don’t circle the other profile and continue to get the normal feed, with a notice of the HOA but no “invite”.
This is how Fraser Cain is handling it for his weekly astronomy HOAs.
cloud collaboration – what can we do together, why it is so difficult for many scientists to adapt to this
the real environmental impact of the internet, power, raw materials, toxic waste etc.
quantum physics, quantum physics, high energy particle physics, bioengineering, and other such endeavors. 🙂
engineering, quantum computing, PCR innovations
These panels are great idea.
Topic idea: the decay of Moore’s law and what materials science can do to reach the thermodynamic limit of transistors per area.
Chris Robinson — Yes, I would be interested. The key will be timing.
Thanks everyone! We’ll update the list of topics and start figuring out dates for the upcoming HOAs. Please let us know if you would like to participate in any of the hangouts.
