OSCon 2011: the citizen science track

This past week was the Open Source Convention hosted by Oreily. And I’m very pleased to report on their new track on Citizen Science. They also
had two wonderful citizen science keynotes.

Futurist and Space Hacker,Ariel Waldman gave an inspiring talk on “Hacking Space Exploration”. Exploring why you shouldn’t let anything get in between you and space.

Biocurious Scientist, Eri Gentry spoke on “Garage Biology and DIYbio” walking us through her journey in founding one of the first Community DIYbio labs.

On top of the citizen science talks they also have some extremely good talks on software and open souce communities in general.
