The Best Algae Story
A bus ride with more than fifty people you’ve never met can be a quiet, awkward experience. Unless however, algae is involved. I had the privilege of partaking in the preconference seminar and tour as part of the 2011 Algae Biomass Summit in Minneapolis, Minnesota on Monday. I talked with a lot of people (and heard a lot of people talking during the bus ride to the tour sites), listened to some great presentations from algae experts at the University of Minnesota (as well as several other presenters outside of the University of Minnesota biology family), and most importantly, I heard a lot of algae-based stories.
I’ll be in Minneapolis all week, providing coverage, content and perspective at the worlds’ largest algae event, and although I have no desire to take another bus ride with a bunch of strangers, I want to hear all the algae-based stories I can.
If you are in Minneapolis, please find me, tell me your story, explain your algae project, your reason for attending or your general thoughts on the world of algae and I’ll do my best to write about it. I want to hear the beginnings, the middles and what you believe it will take to get to an end. If you can’t make the show, email me or call. I’m always ready for a good algae story.
