The dust has settled. All candidates have given their speeches, distributed flyers and
bribes baked goods. The votes have been cast and Mr Graba has announced the winners. I am talking about the first organelle presidential campaign on Twitter, or short #organellewars. If you missed the buzz about it, you can read the background of this spontaneous social media public engagement project:
- On my blog here.
- on Dr John Runion’s blog here, including a recording of his weekly ‘Dr Molecule’ show at BBC Radio Oxford where he talked about Organellewars.
- On Biochembelle’s blog here.
- Robin Heyden describes #organellewars as ‘network effect case study’ here.
- …and of course Mr Graba himself has summarised the whole experience from his and the kids’ view here.
Enough talk, the first organelle to be featured is: THE RIBOSOME! Enjoy.
