Dr. Kiki’s Science Hour – Hacking Science

March 3rd, 2010

A couple of weeks ago I had the distinct pleasure of talking with Ariel Waldman of Spacehack.org on Dr. Kiki’s Science Hour.

We talked a lot about citizen science and the importance of opening up science to the public. She told me about several interesting projects, like GalaxyZoo, which relies on the public to process massive amounts of astronomical data.

Ariel also talked a bit about what got her interested in space and the realm of collaborative science.

You can listen to the interview here.

Or, watch it on ODTV – the On-Demand TWIT Video archive.

You can catch Ariel (and me) at SXSW if you are interested in hearing more. We are speaking on a panel called Open Science: Create, Collaborate, Communicate on Monday, the 15th, at 9:30am.

    Started learning about matters scientific about 5 years ago after never having studied science or spent much time reading about it. There is so much out there that is fascinating – I now read a lot on swarm intelligence and how to shape societal trends using social computing. Your site is another step in my learning process. My blog, Life in the Global Lane, is only a few weeks old = trying to learn from people like you who have been at it a while.
