Think “Slack” for research groups and the AGU Fall Meeting
Imagine if you will 37 scientists and science communicators scattered throughout the LUMCON facility, all working on individual science storytelling projects. How could our host site keep up communication with everyone scattered across the labs and in the field? … For me, the use of Slack was a home run for the OCEANDOTCOMM workshop.
