Why Hasnât Scientific Publishing Been Disrupted Already?

,----[ Quote ]
| When Tim Berners-Lee created the Web in 1991, 
| it was with the aim of better facilitating 
| scientific communication and the dissemination 
| of scientific research. Put another way, the 
| Web was designed to disrupt scientific 
| publishing. It was not designed to disrupt 
| bookstores, telecommunications, matchmaking 
| services, newspapers, pornography, stock 
| trading, music distribution, or a great many 
| other industries.


Jaron Lanier Gets Old And Crotchety; Maybe He Should Kick Those Kids Off His Virtual Reality Lawn

,----[ Quote ]
| The list goes on, but at some point it's just 
| not worth bothering with responding point by 
| point. Lanier's trying to sell a book, and 
| it's yet another in a long line of people who 
| don't like the newfangled thing the kids are 
| using because he doesn't understand it. The 
| fact is, it doesn't matter. The internet is a 
| huge success because people actually like the 
| way it works and they get tons of value out of 
| it, even if it's not the value Lanier wanted.

TinkerCell: modular CAD tool for synthetic biology

,----[ Quote ]
| An application named TinkerCell has been
| developed in order to serve as a CAD tool
| for synthetic biology. TinkerCell is a
| visual modeling tool that supports a
| hierarchy of biological parts. Each part in
| this hierarchy consists of a set of
| attributes that define the part, such as
| sequence or rate constants. Models that are
| constructed using these parts can be
| analyzed using various third-party C and
| Python programs that are hosted by
| TinkerCell via an extensive C and Python
| application programming interface (API).
