Work on Biomass Misconceptions?

Hi Leslie,

On the last call, we discussed the #BiomassWins hashtag, which led to consensus that we should have a social media centric discussion at the next meeting in March.

I actually volunteered to spearhead that discussion using whatever I learn from a social media workshop I’m helping put together for Southeast Partners in Amphibian and Reptile Conservation, where I volunteer as webmaster and communications co-chair.

I suppose volunteering to facilitate a joint AFRI-CAP discussion entails cobbling together a draft agenda fashioned after what I’ve seen sent out before.

This "Biomass Myths" problem might be one facet of that conversation, since misconceptions often spread on social media, and can be refuted on social media. Memes are also largely intended for dispersal on social media, so there’s a solid connection.

And I agree about working collaboratively – Iowa switchgrass is the same as Tennessee switchgrass, same for the forest residue between Co. and Ga., – so we’re all facing the same information delivery challenges.

How about Monday at 1 PM?

Any other day or time is fine too – my thinking is Monday afternoon can be a drag, so a phone call might be a good antidote.

About Tanner Jessel

I am a recent M.S. in Information Science graduate from the University of Tennessee School of Information Science. I was formerly a graduate research assistant funded by DataONE (Data Observation Network for Earth). Prior, I worked for four years as a content lead and biodiversity scientist with the U.S. Geological Survey's Biodiversity Informatics Program. Building on my work experience in biodiversity and environmental informatics, my work with DataONE focused on exploring the nature of scientific collaborations necessary for scientific inquiry. I also conducted research concerning user experience and usability, and assisted in development of member nodes with an emphasis on spatial data and infrastructure. I assisted with research designed to understand sociocultural issues within collaborative research communities. Through August 1, 2014, I was based at the Center for Information and Communication Studies at the University of Tennessee School of Information Science in Knoxville, Tennessee.
