I’m happy to announce the formation of a new Open Science group here in Chicago, called ChiOpenSci. We’re open to enthusiasts, amateurs, researchers, hobbyists, anyone interested in solving scientific problems using (and making) open source and open culture tools and philosophy.
New website here.
Google group here.
First meeting will be on Sunday, September 12 at 4pm at Pumping Station: One in Chicago 3354 N. Elston Ave.
Feel free to bring your enthusiasm and ideas for problems that are best tackled via open software style approaches. Also, all realms of science that study natural phenomena are welcome: astronomy, physics, chemistry, biology, math, engineering, and many more I’m sure I haven’t mentioned.
