SXSW – Open Access, Web 2.0 and the Semantic Web collide in Austin

I’m currently en route to Austin, Texas which, as well as being the setting for one of my all time favourite films, also hosts a renowned series of annual festivals on film, music and interactive media.

I’m fortunate enough to be partipating in this year’s interactive media event, taking part in a panel organized by John Wilbanks of Science Commons on the topic of Web 2.0 and Semantic Web: The Impact on Scientific Publishing.

My fellow panelists include Melissa Hagemann from the Open Society Institute, Timo Hannay from Nature, and Amit Kapoor who is responsible for the technology behind PLoS One. The panel is taking place at 5pm on Saturday 10th March – it looks set to be an interesting session.
