Physics Today would like to chat to some Zooniverse volunteers
« on: November 17, 2015, 05:17:34 pm »
Hi everyone,

Toni Feder from Physics Today would like to chat to some Zooniverse volunteers, especially if you have taken part in physics or astronomy projects. If you are interested in helping out, please email Toni directly at tfeder@umd.edu.

Cheers,

Grant

We may not be the target audience, but we can still make a plug for OW ;)

Note: Toni said she hopes she gets a few more interviewees.

I'd love to help -- but I did five minutes of Higgs, got cross because there was no understandable help, recalled the misery of Physics 'A' level (though I had a lovely teacher), and decided that I needed exercise - i.e. to run for the hills!  ::)  I hope others offer to help because it's good to support this part of citizen science, by my books  :)
Good luck with it  :)

You can, Joan!
It says "especially if you have taken part in physics or astronomy projects."
especially, but not exclusively!

I volunteered, even though I have worked only on OW, and Toni was very happy to hear from me, and she hoped some other OW people would have a chat with her. She lives in Austin, Texas for those who think about time zones.
