For this week’s Interviews with Innovators show I spoke with Deepak Singh. This interview extends what has become an ongoing series of discussions with folks who are applying the principles of web 2.0 to the practice of science. This was, of course, the original purpose of web 1.0.
Other Innovators shows on this topic include conversations with Joel Selanikio about epidemiological data collection, Barbara Aronson about giving poor countries free subscriptions to biomedical journals, and Timo Hannay about the impressive stream of online innovations that’s flowing from the Nature Publishing Group.
My new Perspectives series has also explored this theme of Net-enabled science. There, I’ve talked with Catharine van Ingen and Dennis Baldocchi about collaborative analysis of atmospheric C02 data, and with Pablo Fernicola about using Word to produce scientific articles in the National Library of Medicine’s XML format.
