Paul, · Categories: General

Had a great coffee session with Bora yesterday. He was very excited about his work with the Public Library of Science and about his recent trip to Science FOO Camp held at the Googleplex and featuring top scientists like Freeman Dyson, Martha Stewart and the Amazing Randi. His blog entries here.

Some of the folks he met there will be coming to the 2008 Science Bloggers Conference here in January.
