Posts I would like to write: incorporating lay experts

Jan 15 2011 Published by under Posts I would like to write

Here's a blog post that needs to be written: Ed Yong mentioned in his session earlier today (scio11, 1/15, 2-3) writing about an article from nature on chicken and getting an e-mail from a chicken farmer. This goes back to the multiple kinds of expertise and the knowledge that practitioners have. The example from the literature is sheep farmers, but same thing.

My point is that there should be a way researchers and these expert non-scientists can collaborate on a blog or in social media to increase mutual understanding, help the research, and help the practice.
