Title: Science 2.0

The development of the Web has provided new ways for doing science, publishing and communicating science, networking within a scientific community, and teaching science. Blogs and wikis, existing social networking sites (e.g, Facebook), new science networking sites, Open Access Publishing and Open Notebook Science are just some of the many ways that scientists, students and interested laypeople are starting to change the way science (communication) is done, connected, used and archived and the future is difficult to predict - which does not stop us from speculating, which is the fun part, so let’s speculate!
