Invited Symposium Speaker at a Fortune 500 Company

12 Jun

I’m excited to speak next week at a “by invitation only” symposium at one of the top Fortune 500 Companies. The focus of the gathering for the 350 attendees will be “Networks” and I will be speaking about  “Crowd-sourcing to Build A Structure-centric Community for Chemists”. I will of course talk about ChemSpider but also about my experiences with Wikipedia Chemistry and other general and scientific networks I have become involved with over the years. I will be speaking alongside invited speakers from organizations such as Yahoo, MIT, General Electric, Brookhaven, Harvard University etc so I am quite humbled not only by the invitation  but also by the chance to network (appropriate for a gathering about “networks”) with such a diverse group of people. I’m not sure what the situation is regarding releasing the presentation publicly after the gathering but will do so following discussions with the organizers. I’m sure it will be acceptable.
