Open Source Science in Class

Beth Ritter-Guth is currently running her English class with a very special assignment for her students: research and document the emerging role of Open Source Science. They are tackling this using multiple information sources, including blogs, articles and interviews.

They interviewed me this week and the podcast is now available.

Anyone with an interest in Open Source Science is free to comment on their work in progress posted on this wiki page. Also see Beth's Technical Writing class blog on OSS.

Another part of this assignment will involve understanding the larger context of the UsefulChem research projects on malaria, AIDS and arsenic in drinking water. They will be interviewing people involved in this type of research, including the students working in my lab, mainly on the malaria project.
