Tony Williams Drexel Visit

Tony Williams stopped by Drexel on August 21, 2008. After a nice chat with Martin Walker over lunch, Tony presented a demo of ChemSpider. The timing was not great because this was concurrent with the ACS meeting in Philadelphia. However, Tony recorded the session and it is available here as a Flash screencast.

Tony also took the opportunity to make an announcement of some new text mark-up features about to be made available on ChemSpider. For a brief video and description see his blog post.

I met Tony when I was a graduate student at the University of Ottawa and he was running the NMR facilities there. Even though he had not touched an NMR in 12 years he clearly has not lost his touch and got us out of a serious jam with the acquisition of carbon spectra on our Varian instrument. Just like old times.

Once you get to know Tony you'll appreciate why so many of us are willing to support and put our trust in ChemSpider.
