Scientific Researchers and Web 2.0: Social 'NotWorking'?

Found on Joanna Scott's blog  http://network.nature.com/people/joannascott/blog



TalkScience@bl.uk is a series of events hosted by the British Library, providing opportunities to inform, engage, debate and network with scientists and all those who use scientific information.

Wednesday 24 September 2008

  • Is Web2.0 all about attitudes or technologies?
  • What can Web2.0 do for your research?
  • As a scientist, are there good reasons for getting involved beyond social ‘not working’?
  • Web3.0: another buzzword or a semantic revolution for science on the web?

Timo Hannay is the Publishing Director of Nature.com. With a background in biosciences research, Timo oversees Nature’s growing portfolio of web-based activities including Nature Network, Connotea, and other initiatives using Web2.0 functionality to connect and involve researchers.

Timo will be speaking live in the British Library and the event will be simultaneously screened on Second Nature. Following Timo’s talk, attendees from both the British Library and Second Nature will have the chance to question Timo and discuss the topics raised.

Speaker: Dr Timo Hannay, Nature Publishing Group

Date: Wednesday 24th September

Time: 18:00 – 20:30 London time, 10:00 – 12:30 PDT.

Location: Second Nature Island

All welcome!
