Communicating Chemistry at ACS

I just got the schedule for the symposium on Communicating Chemistry at the Spring 2007 American Chemical Society meeting in Chicago. It is being run by the Chemical Education (CHED) and Chemical Information (CINF) divisions. My talk on Open Notebook Chemistry using Blogs and Wikis is at 9:45 on March 27. It looks like there will be lots of interesting presenters and talks. Here is the schedule:
