Community Science Workshops and Shared Authorship of Space: Interview with Emilyn Green

Museum 2.0

I sat down with Emilyn Green, Executive Director of the Community Science Workshop Network , to learn more about their history, design, and engagement strategy. We received two rounds of NSF funding in the 1990s to expand. We received NSF funding for three years and then it cut off. Big thanks to Emilyn Green and the Community Science Workshop Network for sharing insights in this post. Imagine the most community-based science center possible.

How Cell Phones and Tablets Enable Telework

Tech Soup Blog

There is a ton of info on how telework helps the environment and is considered part of green technology. As an example, the National Science Foundation (NSF) found that by not commuting, each NSF teleworker reclaims an average of 62 hours of their lives back and saves $1,201 a year. Extrapolating those savings across the agency, NSF teleworkers each year collectively spare the environment more than 1 million pounds of emissions and save more than $700,000 in commuting costs.

Back in the early 1990s, I was "hoisting" web pages onto the Internet with a colleague David Green who worked at the New York Foundation for the Arts on the Arts Wire project. The director of the NSF has gone so far as to say that it will "usher in a technological age that dwarfs everything we have yet experienced in its sheer scope and power."
