Outreach roundup

I realised the other day that I have all manner of little posts, podcast contributions and the like spread around the net where I’ve made small contributions or guest appearances on various forums. While I’ve mentioned at least a few of there on here at one time or another, it seemed sensible to put them all if one place if only so I could find them again. Still, at least a few readers might be interested in some of these so I thought I’d make a post out of it and leave it here. I can’t find / remember everything so actually if you do know of something I did that’s not here, err, can you let me know?

    Wow, I just noticed how similar my interview was to the one on the Smithsonian Dinosaur Tracking. I didn’t even know about that interview until today.

    I too never realized you did so many interviews. I have some catching up reading to do.

    BTW, I’ve been meaning to ask you (as someone who writes more for the enthusiast): Have you read “The Age of Reptiles: The Art and Science of Rudolph Zallinger’s Great Dinosaur Mural at Yale, Second Edition” ( http://www.amazon.com/The-Age-Reptiles-Zallingers-Dinosaur/dp/0912532769/ref=tmm_other_meta_binding_title_0?ie=UTF8&qid=1348758242&sr=1-1 ) &, if so, would you say it’s more for casual readers, the enthusiast or the specialist? I ask b/c, while its target audience is “Scholarly & Professional” according to Ebay, new Amazon copies are much cheaper than what I’d expect for a book for the specialist. Many thanks in advance.

      “I too never realized you did so many interviews. ”

      I have a terrible habit of saying “Yes” to people who ask me to do stuff. I did a spot on Australian radio this week and a did a few on BBC radio years ago but none of it’s online anymore, and i’ve done all manner of various public and school talks a few magazine articles.

      As for the book, sorry didn’t even know about it and certainly not read it.

    “Nope sorry, not read it. I’ve seen it around, but never cracked it open to sit down and read.”

    It’s OK. As it turns out, this book didn’t qualify either, & for the same reasons as the other book (which is quite coincidental). Sorry to bother you w/so many questions that turned out to be moot. Figuring out which books to collect has been a work in progress ever since I started.

    BTW, I could use your help w/something else, but it’ll take longer to explain. Should I just post it as a comment here or is there an email address I should send it to? Many thanks in advance.

    I just got a “Delivery has failed” email after trying to email you at David.Hone@ucd.ie. I’m guessing that means said address isn’t yours?

    • 11 David Hone 21/10/2012 at 9:07 am

      Well it was, I left 18 months ago. Sorry to make you hunt around like this, but I really don’t like advertising my mail toooo clearly as I then tend to get bombarded with stuff.

      • 12 Herman Diaz 22/10/2012 at 1:50 am

        I understand. Anyway, I just sent the email to another address & wanted to make sure that you received it this time.
