Science 2.0

Greg Wilson is hosting a great event for scientists about “Science 2.0: What Every Scientist Needs to Know about how the Web is Changing the Way They Work”. It’s a free event hosted at MaRS. The event looks at the impact of cheap computing in GPUs and PCs that present opportunities for high performance computing. It looks at open scientific data and community participation and discovery. There are a great group of scientific and computational luminaries attending. (My personal favourite is Jon Udell. Jon was a big reason I joined Microsoft, I have followed his work at InfoWorld and Byte Magazine, and I’ve been very lucky to meet Jon at FooCamp, Mix08, PDC08).

I hope that folks from the Ontario Science Centre, Ryerson University, University of Waterloo, Royal Ontario Museum, take the opportunity to engage and participate. (It looks like a great group, there were over 125 participants registered on the Science 2.0 attendees list).

A decade ago, people like Jon Udell were imagining how the web could radically change the way science is done. Today, those visions are becoming a reality, and on July 29, you can join us for an afternoon of talks about what’s happening and how it could touch your life. Full details are at http://softwarecarpentry.wordpress.com/guests/ — the event is free, but you must register in advance (as there is limited seating). Our speakers will include:

  • Titus Brown: Choosing Infrastructure and Testing Tools for Scientific Software Projects
  • Cameron Neylon: A Web Native Research Record: Applying the Best of the Web to the Lab Notebook
  • Michael Nielsen: Doing Science in the Open: How Online Tools are Changing Scientific Discovery
  • David Rich: Using “Desktop” Languages for Big Problems
  • Victoria Stodden: How Computational Science is Changing the Scientific Method
  • Jon Udell: Collaborative Curation of Public Events
