Scifoo is just a few weeks away and I was reviewing the list of attendees this evening to see who I would be sharing space with.
I am especially looking forward to spening time with Andrew Lang, one of the brains behind the Spectral Game. We’ve spoken on the phone, exchanged many emails and worked on a couple of projects together. But we get to meet at SciFoo!
Last time I was at SciFoo I spent time talking with Cameron Neylon and JC Bradley about Open Notebook Science. At that time I had lots of ideas about what we could do to support Open Notebook Science. We actually have done quite well but at that time we were severely resource constrained. Things are a little different now we have been acquired by the RSC and I am looking forward to talking about what’s necessary and possible now.
Nicko Goncharoff from SureChem will be there. Nicko and I have spent a lot of time together over the past few years, mostly by phone and over email as we worked to integrate SureChem into ChemSpider and use their software development kit under our ChemMantis semantic chemistry markup tool. It’s always good to see him.
Other people I hope to spend some time talking to: Peter Murray Rust from the university of Cambridge, Timo Hannay, Alf Eaton and Terry Sheppard from the Nature Publishing Group and Theodore Gray.Stumble it!
