NIST Social Media Day Open Notebook Science Talk

Jean-Claude Bradley presented on Open Notebook Science at the NIST Social Media Day on December 11, 2008. The talks starts with an overview of ONS and how it is being used to assess solubility measurements being crowdsourced in the ONS Challenge and Submeta Awards. The use of wikis, blogs, Google Spreadsheets, YouTube, Flickr, ChemSpider and other free hosted Web2.0 tools is highlighted. The UsefulChem project, involving the synthesis of anti-malarial agents, is then briefly covered. Finally, a very recent application of using Google Spreadsheets to automatically call web services to calculate volumes and weights of chemicals needed in reactions is demonstrated (code by Rajarshi Guha).

Open Notebook Science BCCE 2008

Update: transcript now available

This is a presentation by Jean-Claude Bradley at the Biennial Conference for Chemical Education (BCCE) on July 29, 2008. The talk starts with an overview of Open Notebook Science using a wiki as a public lab notebook. An example of the usefulness of publishing failed experiments is detailed, showing how the version history of the wiki can be used to track the evolution of an organic chemistry experiment. Near the end of the talk an example of using automation to optimize a Ugi reaction is mentioned.
