Henry Rzepa and Peter Murray-Rust were awarded the Henry Skolnik Award from the Division of Chemical Information of the American Chemical Society at the 2012 fall national ACS meeting in Philadelphia. Henry and Peter have been the pioneers in creating a chemicaly-aware semantically-rich web presence and have been leaders in pushing for open data and open source. Both of them have been quite influential on my own ideas and projects, and I have worked with them both on a number of projects. I was honored to participate in the symposium surrounding this award.
My talk was on blogging and chemical communication, and you can download my PowerPoint presentation.
