The Rubicon Team is packing for the Rebreather Forum 3.0 conference in Orlando this weekend. We will be helping out at the event and providing live tweets at the hashtag “#rf3” for those that can not make it to this exciting meeting.
Was is Rebreather Forum?
The Rebreather Forum 2.0 meeting took place in Redondo Beach, California, USA in 1996. The meeting was organized by Michael Menduno and the Professional Association of Diving Instructors (PADI) to bring together the best minds in the industry to discuss problems, solutions, potential hurdles, and general safety as it relates to rebreather diving. The proceedings for this forum are a classic work that bring together into one easy to read format all of those discussions.
The American Academy of Underwater Sciences (AAUS), Divers Alert Network (DAN), and the Professional Association of Diving Instructors (PADI) organizations have come together to bring us Rebreather Forum 3.0 to again bring together the best knowledge and experience available for all of us. The current state of the art in equipment, sensors, training and exploration will be explained and discussed. This is a great opportunity to find out how far we have coming in the last 18 years!
Can I get the Rebreather Forum 2.0 Proceedings in the Rubicon Research Repository?
We were able to work with the Diving Science & Technology Corp (DSAT) a while back to make this paper available.

What are you doing on twitter?
Last month, Rubicon founding board member Gene Hobbs tweeted the PhD defense of Dr. Kernagis. Basically, as she was presenting, Gene tried to summarize the talk’s major key points or things he found interesting. Twitter limits comments to 140 characters so these are all very short statements called “tweets”. By using a hashtag (this symbol: #) and her last name “Kernagis” at the beginning of each statement, people could follow along with the comments being made by people at the event with a simple search for “#Kernagis”.
I don’t have a twitter account, can I still check things out?
Anyone can follow the tweets made by people at the meeting or discussing the meeting from wherever they are located by refreshing the web search page for that hashtag. You can get to that page by following the link we are providing here: ”#rf3“.
Is there a good resource to learn how to use twitter?
