Position/Organization: independent blogger; chronobiologist; online discussion manager at Scientific American
Bora Zivkovic, originally of Belgrade, Yugoslavia (now Serbia), now of North Carolina, takes his online moniker, Coturnix, from Coturnix japonica, the Japanese quail, which was the subject of his master's thesis in chronobiology. In A Blog Around the Clock, he writes frequently on science, science communication, and, with special vigor, the problems and possibilities science journalism and science communication face as it tries to move from print and corporate structures and practices to more open online structures and practices. NYU's Jay Rosen calls Zivkovic a 'natural-born blogger.' He is also co-founder and co-organizer of the annual ScienceOnline conferences held in the Research Triangle area, and founder and publisher of the annual online-science-writing anthology The Open Laboratory.
