2010 Calendars from CAS & Patex

I came across these excellent 2010 calendars mentioned by Kevin Lindstrom on the SciEng@UBC Blog.

1. Every year the Chemical Abstracts Service of the American Chemical Society publishes a wonderful calendar – the Colors of Chemistry. Starting in 2010 this calendar is now available either as a free download or as an online interactive calendar.

Go to 2010 Colors of Chemistry Calendar and choose your option.

2. Ron Simmer Patent and IP Expert has issued this Patex Bizarre Patents Calendar. Ron’s site of patent and intellectual property links available at the Patex website.

WikiGenes

In WikiGenes, authorship tracking technology enables users to directly identify the source of every word. This was not possible in first generation wikis, although authorship is essential to acknowledge contributors and to appraise the reliability of information. On the basis of clear authorship attribution, users can rate each other, and a self-regulating reputation system can be implemented. This is useful to address quality maintenance and the problem of editing conflicts, which used to depend on slow and theoretically refutable top-down decisions. To facilitate contribution and unambiguous use of scientific language, WikiGenes enables editing of articles in their final layout and citation of scientific terminology and references through integrated database and ontology lookups. All contributions to WikiGenes will be open access.
