What happens to your data, research, and online identity after you die?
ScienceOnlineSeattle will explore this topic at their fall kickoff event. Digging into the intricacies of data and social media archiving, intellectual property vs. the Cloud, and other issues at the nexus of science, online, and human mortality, #sosea will host three experts in diverse perspectives on this complex topic. Join us, in person or online! Register here!

Can the online world save the real world? Join ScienceOnlineSeattle on June 13th as we partner with the Seattle Science Festival to consider the online dimensions of “Our Changing Planet”, and the role that the rapidly changing virtual world has in responding to global change. We will livestream and live-tweet this provocative panel discussion, and then we’ll host an afterparty conversation with the speakers, in the Governor’s Room at Hotel Deca, at 4507 Brooklyn Ave NE, where we’ll explore science communication, advocacy, and effective mobilization of social movements: what can the online discussion REALLY accomplish?

SCIENCE ONLINE SEATTLE #2
Dances with data: Tools for turning information into visual stories.
Room 133, William Gates Hall, University of Washington, 6:30pm – 8:00pm
With the accelerating accessibility of data, from satellite imagery, genomics and all ‘omics, digitized historical records, and more, answering research questions is now as much about working — and playing — with existing data as about gathering new data. What are the most effective ways to explore your data and extract meaning from it? How can others — scientists, managers, the public – explore or even contribute to the data behind your graphics? At this month’s #sosea we will highlight some of the slickest tools and methods for creating insights from data, and discuss what is — and isn’t — changing about data visualization in an age of informatics and open science. Join us!
ScienceOnline Seattle is a local meeting of the ScienceOnlineNOW community. The local co-organizers are Liz Neeley of COMPASS, Jennifer Davison of the University of Washington College of the Environment and Brian Glanz of the Open Science Federation and Northwest Association for Biomedical Research.

If you can’t attend, we’ll be streaming the event live at http://new.livestream.com/scioWC/ and you can follow it on Twitter using the hashtag #soSEA.
CONTINUING THE CONVERSATION…
After the event, we will adjourn to Big Time Brewery & Alehouse on the Ave.
Mark your calendars for next Monday, April 16, because not one but two conversations will take place around the doing and communicating of science in a digital world.
First up, a panel discussion “A Tale of Three Websites” will take place from 330-430pm in Foege s 060. This is the fifth in the WSG/COSEE-OLC sponsored “Beyond the Ivory Tower” series, and will explore research in cyberspace, from the perspective of 3 websites, including SAFS.
Then, stay on campus for the inaugural ScienceOnline Seattle, a monthly conversation that will take place at 7pm-9pm in William H. Gates Hall, room 133. The first discussion will feature Dean Lisa Graumlich, as well as Brian Glanz, Open Science Federation and Firas Khatib and Seth Cooper, Foldit. Can’t be on campus for this event? No problem — it will be livestreamed and tweeted under the hashtag #sosea. Check out the blog posts at Nature and Scientific American for background on this event.
We hope to see you there!
