Open Science for undergrads!

Earlier this week I was invited (er, invited myself, really) to give a talk to a class of first year computer science students about open access and open science. Sadly, there was a partial snow day that day and I was unable to actually give the talk. Which is too bad, because I’ve done similar talks before for undergrads and really enjoy the opportunity. In particular, the challenge I wanted to set forth for those budding computing professions was to be a part of developing software solutions for science on the web be they open access journals systems or web data hosting or whatver.

In any case, I hope I’ll get to do this another time and hopefully in a variety of contexts. But for now, here are my slides. Questions, comments, suggestions are, of course, welcome.
