This conversation is by way of introducing Jackie Taylor as the new moderator of the Science Community of Practice. Many of you already know Jackie from one or another facet of her professional life. She has had many aspects to her career; through this discussion you may learn previously unknown dimensions to her work.
This is an asynchronous discussion: Jackie is in the Eastern Time Zone, and I am on Pacific Time. We expect the conversation to last over the next two days. Please read along and join in with comments and questions of your own, if you wish to do so!
