Hi, all. I am delighted to announce that we have finally officially launched ResearchRaven http://www.researchraven.com/ It is designed to save researchers time and effort in finding calls for papers for conferences and journals and announcements of meetings. It is a little light on some categories so far and I am still populating it.
I came across the words "lifestream" and "aggregator" recently. I know, I'm behind the times. And, I came across Cameron Neylon's blog entry on science lifestreaming. http://blog.openwetware.org/science... Very cool and informative.
Dear friends: What's a good way to scan for conferences, meetings, and other events in my area? I'm aware of eventful/upcoming, but they miss many things. I'm looking for something along the lines of a well-tweaked Google Alert that would find local science/tech events.
In the wake of the Facebook buyout and the recent outage and the Buzz debacle and so on, lots of folks are considering exit strategies. I'm wondering whether we could fund a user-owned version, probably based on Tornado. Would you pay for FriendFeed? If so, how much/year? Survey here: http://www.surveymonkey.com/s....
Who owns the copyright of the reviews? Are we allowed to post the full text of the email from the editor on our website with our papers? Journals don't want to publish the reviews but may authors post them on their website on a voluntary basis? Do you think that this step might make science more open.
