ChemSpider was given life and crawled onto the web in front of the public on March 27th of this year. 4 months later we have come a long way and have pretty well stayed on our trajectory and intentions to deliver a valuable Open Access system to chemists around the world. A lot of questions are coming through regarding the intentions behind the system and where we are going. Also, more and more, where do we see ourselves relative to PubChem, eMolecules and CAS. I’ve tried to address these questions in a presentation. It is available as a Powerpoint presentation or as a PDF file.
Maybe I have misrepresented something in my rush to communicate through this medium. Hopefully no one is upset at the commentary but, as I’ve become used to in the blogosphere, someone likely is ..so please comment here or send me an email off line.
