Online Conference: Climate Change from the Smithsonian

The gingko leaf at left is an image featured on the Smithsonian's site along with details about their online conference on Climate Change. A list of times and speakers is also available.

Most people know that the Smithsonian is referred to as our nation's "attic" due to the extensive physical collections, but I have been really impressed with the way it is embracing technology and helping others to do so. For example, their tutorial on podcasting is one I have been directing people to for years since it is one of the best I have seen. And now the Smithsonian is inviting us to "get social" with a terrific blog about climate change and Twitter and Facebook entries, too.
