N&O article about Anton and NC Science Blogging Conference

Dan Barkin of the News and Observer has a good article called Bloggers Talk Science. It tells a short but good story about the marvelous Mister Sugar and shares the details of the NC Science Blogging Conference. It also tells the world about all the cool stuff we’ve done with our blogger meet-up group Blogtogether. Like the triangle blogging conference and PodcasterCon.

But my favorite part of this article is the praise of Anton Zuiker. Both him and Bora Zivkovic are doing and amazing job on the NCSBC.

The Web has evolved into a tribal Internet of passionate bloggers like Zuiker, and he has become a sort-of local brand. He’s a quiet visionary. He’s a low-key doer. He’s a let’s-get-together-and-see-where-this-goes guy. It’s the Zuikers of this new, interwoven world who may play a significant role in determining how far Web 2.0 goes from being a sociable network to a social force.
