Networked Science


Spark takes a look at science through the lens of the internet. Nora interviews author Michael Nielsen of "Reinventing Discovery: The New Era of Networked Science" to explore how collaborative tools like wikis, blogs, and online databases could re-shape how we make scientific discoveries. We also hear from Seth Cooper, co-founder and lead developer of an online science puzzle game called Foldit (fun with protein structures!) and Anthony Philbin about his Montreal-based startup meTracker, which aims to make personal experimentation and self-tracking easier, and could have practical applications in fields such as medicine.
