ISMB/ECCB 2009 Conference Blogging

Calling all Bloggers!

This year ISCB is paving the way to create a link between the ISMB/ECCB scientific program, ISCB's web portal and our community's bloggers. To accomplish this we have collaborated with last year's core blogger team from ISMB in Toronto (see http://www.ploscompbiol.org/) and are planning the following:
A designated blog tech team will trigger the creation of a new blog on the FriendFeed (http://friendfeed.com/ismbeccb2009) platform shortly before the start of each talk in the conference schedule. The feed link will be posted into our online program schedule for all subscribers to easily find.

Anyone can then join that feed to participate in real-time blogging of the talk with colleagues that might be seated on the opposite side of the aisle, or the opposite side of the globe! You do not need to be attending ISMB/ECCB in Stockholm to blog along with the rest of them.

By embracing blogging as a valuable conference activity we hope to help speed the dissemination of the science presented in Stockholm.

If you are not already subscribed to FriendFeed and think you might want to participate in this activity, sign up in advance and get ready to jump right into the discussions without delay!
