I'm back from the UCSD workshop on New Communication Channels for Biology
held June 27-28, 2008. The talks were recorded and are now available here
The first day mainly consisted of talks while the second was very heavy on breakout sessions (see agenda
). Probably the most beneficial part for me was seeing old friends or meeting in person several people I had only interacted with online previously. For example was nice to finally meet Dan Gezelter
from the OpenScience project
and Hilary Spencer
from Nature Precedings
. I also had a blast over enchiladas on Friday night with Mike Nieslen
and Jen Dodd
. Mike gave a very engaging talk on the Future of Science
on Thursday night.
The presentations were recorded and should be available within a week on the wiki link above - I'll post an update here when I am made aware of it.
