The MPE2013 Working Group for Public Awareness and Social Media is in the process of organizing a community of MPE2013 Bloggers. We invite you to join in this public conversation about the mathematical sciences and their relevance to studies of Planet Earth. Everyone is welcome, whether you are an old hand at blogging or a newcomer to social media.
We encourage personal commentary on any topic associated with MPE2013. A contribution can be a report on a meeting, a pointer to important research results, a website recommendation, a short essay on a key issue, a book review, a news item, or any other material that might be of interest to a broad audience. A contribution can be as short as a couple of paragraphs and may include a photo or illustration or even an audio or video clip. We recommend no more than about 1,000 words of text. Here is a link to a helpful web site, http://www.maa.org/pubs/FOCUSfeb-mar12_blogroll.html, in case you are wondering how to get started.
We anticipate a daily blog during the entire year 2013. You may choose your date(s) and topic(s) to blog about your favorite event(s). We understand that last-minute changes are part of the action. To register, send a message to firstname.lastname@example.org, with an indication of preferred dates and topics.
