Back from ASIST Open Science Panel

Yesterday (Oct 23, 2007) I participated in a panel on Open Science and Science Blogging at the ASIST conference in Milwaukee.

The full three presentations are available here: streaming Flash. (63:44)

Following a brief introduction by Phil Edwards,

  • Bora Zivkovic kicks off with his presentation "The Many Flavors of Science Blogging" ppt followed by mine
  • Jean-Claude Bradley "UsefulChem: An Open Notebook Science Project" ppt (starts at 18:35)
  • then Janet Stemwedel's "Social and Scientific Implications of Scientific Blogging" ppt (starts at 41:30).
Bora provided an overview of science blogging with plenty of good examples. I provided details of how we use blogs and wikis to do drug development and collaborate openly with the UsefulChem project. Janet wrapped up touching on the importance of blogs that chronicle the experiences of researchers and how the system works.

A few people took some really good notes:
Christina Pikas
Ken Varnum
Stephanie Willen Brown

This conference was a great opportunity to get together with Bora, Janet and Christina Pikas over sausages and sauerkraut. Hopefully we'll meet up again at Bora's NC Science Blogging conference in January.

The half-hour question session was also recorded and I'll provide a link when it is available.

Thanks for letting me know the recording is online. It was nice to see you -- see you in NC in January!
