In November 2011, Metanexus launched its new website rebuilt from the bottom up in Drupal. This was the culmination of twelve months work. In January 2012 we began publishing a weekly e-newsletter under the tagline “Exploring Big History, Solving Big Problems, Debating Big Questions.” There are approximately 9000 subscribers to the e-newsletter.
The website and newsletter features original essays, books, aggregated content, and digital art exhibitions. During this time frame, Metanexus also began actively using social media—Facebook, Twitter, and Google+—where we have a growing readership. The website received 229,049 unique visitors and 438,716 during FY 2011-2012.
Metanexus hosted several living room salons in New York City for Ursula Goodenough, V.V. Raman, and George Ellis.
Our major activity was planning for “One Day Universe: Visualizing Big History: A Celebration of Science from the Big Bang to the 21st Century.” The inaugural event will be held on September 21, 2013 at Liberty Science Center in New Jersey and is designed to be replicated at colleges and universities.
