Scientific American has published an article about what is now called “Science 2.0“. The concept is similar to the leap from the WWW to Web 2.0: Publishing of scientific data in ways possible to share and aggregate it. Essentially, we’re talking about an application of social networking concepts to scientific research, thus bringing the latter back to its roots of openly sharing and reviewing scientific developments before their final form. According to the article, it has worked very well so far, for the OpenWetWare project.
