But it isn't myspace for scientists is it .... which is what we all talk about when we present myExperiment.

That is the point of all the work on ownership, credit, IP, sharing,, permission policy, selfish scientists etc in myExperiment.

This is lazy and depressingly unimaginative reporting. As our chief blogger I hope you will respond.


I couldn't possibly comment ;-)

Some interesting points raised, and it's a reasonable critique of the pros and cons of "Science 2.0", e.g.

"Scientists do not interact like teenagers chatting or rock bands reaching out to their fans. "myspace for scientists" is a poorly thought out model for the culture of scientific research
