BibServer and BibSoup: sharing distributed bibliographies

My bibliography visualized on bibsoup

My bibliography visualized on bibsoup

The openbiblio group from OpenKnowledge Foundation has came up with a nifty idea: sharing all the bibliographies, without trying to make the golden bibliography, but actually making easy to share everybody bibliography in a easy way.

The current implementation is at bibserver, while you can upload your own biblio using bibsoup.

I’ve uploaded also mine, which opens the post with a bubble chart visualization, and you can browse also here: http://bibsoup.net/mattions/computational_neuroscience

Science is all about sharing ideas with the others

Today I had a really nice conversation during the 9th EMBL PhD Symposium on “Patterns in Biology” at the EMBL in Heidelberg.

Science is sharing ideas with others. That was a really good sentence that has popped out during a really nice conversation between me and some friends.

Mainly you can speak about everything, create new models, propose new approaches, give an idea and then there is always the experiment. It’s always possible to fall back to the raw data and check what really is going on.

Without the sharing of ideas there will be no progress and any new idea will pop up. That’s why I’m really interested in the open science proposed by the bioinformatics zen.

More over this post of a possible workflow as notified by Giovanni here, makes really clear that sharing ideas is the good thingTM to do.
