Very cool chart: the Top 200 drugs from 2009 and their structures:
Do you know if there is a XHTML+RDFa version too? - Egon Willighagen
Would be good to have the small molecules in that diagram in ChemPedia... - Egon Willighagen
The "top level" link is here:, it doesn't look like they went any further than the PDF, but it may be worth reaching out to them to see if they have it - Benjamin Tseng

I'm looking for some references which show evidence that some basic research is unnecessarily repeated due to a lack of openness or access to data - or is this not true? There are plenty of papers which say secrecy in science makes it difficult to accurately repeat research when necessary, but is there also unnecessary repetition?
@Neil, thanks, interesting idea, I guess that could be one place to start! - Lucy Power
I'm not sure it's that easy to distinguish between lack of openness and literature search failure - Pawel Szczesny from iPhone
In the argument around peer review this came up. I think it might be very difficult to quantify. I can give you a couple of anecdotes but given I've spent the last several days whining about anecdotal evidence... :-) - Cameron Neylon
Back in the late 80s there was some research in the engineering technological gatekeepers literature showing that researchers would not walk 400 feet to the library to find an answer to a question, but would instead repeat the study. This was part of a body of literature examining preferred information sources for different specialties, with similar findings for all professions studied. I used the cite in a paper I wrote, but I no longer have electronic access to the original. If I can find it ... ? - Patricia F. Anderson

Does anyone know of an easy way to stream presentation slides to a remote collaborator while I give audio on the phone? Required: I've got to be able to advance the slides from my end, at least 640x480 resolution, and can be either linux or windows based
webex? They have some free trials. - pn
I did this recently using GoogleDocs. I was able to share my powerpoint and advance the slides while I talked over Skype. - Elizabeth Brown
Skype has desktop sharing. - Donnie Berkholz
I've used GoToMeeting (free version) with good success. - Bill Hooker
Have done such with Skype, worked fine. - Daniel Mietchen
Adobe also offers a free desktop sharing option called Adobe ConnectNow. Also include video-conferencing but is limited to three participants per session. Worked fine when I tried it. - Arnulf Köhncke
Yes, you can do this in Google Docs and Skype. Skype works especially well for a single user. My favorite, though, is Zoho Show - Patricia F. Anderson
