Apparently not even the 16,000-plus scientific presentations at this year's Society for Neuroscience (SfN) meeting are enough to fully occupy some of the 29,500 (and counting) attendees. Many are finding time to post short snippets on Twitter (hashtag #sfn09) about posters to check out, how to download meeting info onto an iPhone or other mobile device (see here or here), what beer is on tap at local restaurants, or how to get good wireless and cell phone reception in the convention center (good luck with that).
Blogging activity has picked up too this year. For the first time, SfN officially appointed 11 bloggers to cover various subtopics at the meeting, but they are not the only ones. Drug Monkey blog is keeping a list of both sanctioned and renegade bloggers in case you need something to do.
