Science Online New York (SoNYC) encourages audience participation in the discussion of how science is carried out and communicated online. To celebrate our first birthday , we are handing the mic over to the audience so that a nyone who would like to participate will get five minutes to show off their favourite online tool, application or website that makes science online fun. To complement the celebrations, we’re hosting a series of guest posts on Soapbox Science where a range of scientists share details about what’s in their online science toolkits. Why not let us know how they compare to the tools that you use in the comment threads? Jenn Cable received a PhD in Biochemistry in June 2011 and since then has been working towards becoming a science writer. She currently writes regularly on nature.com’s New York Blog and also works as a medical writer, developing materials for new drugs.
