There are benefits to a conference you can attend in your pajamas. You are comfortable for one. But what I didn't realize before getting involved with the World Seabird Twitter Conference is the sense of community that comes from remotely connecting with hundreds of like-minded researchers and organizations. Nor did I anticipate the full value of all the presentations that would be shared.
The second World Seabird Twitter Conference, which started at 10AM UTC has already surpassed the popularity of the first. Anybody on twitter can tune in by looking up the hashtag #WSTC2. More information is in the program.
It's already stratospheric and I am very pleased to have been part of the organizing committee with Sjúrður Hammer @sjurdur, Danielle Fife @Danielle_T_Fife, Katherine Keogan @KatharineKeogan, Max Czapanskiy @mfczap, Helen Wade @Helen_Wade_ and Stephanie Borrelle @ PetrelStation.
