This annual event promises to dig deep into the online world asking what science can do to leverage the internet, crowd power, blogs, twitter and all the rest of the tech we hear about every day. As with many areas of industry and commerce, the internet is turning upside down old business models, communications and institutional power. It’s asking probing questions of how we communicate with each other, who we communicate with and with how many. Science can benefit and this conference promises to highlight some of the new ways scientists, their funders, the journalists, the bloggers and the people formerly known as the audience/public are interacting and operating in this brave new world.
