    - Can innovation turn the tables on the financial crisis? - What are the social impacts of technological innovation? - How can the EIT push the innovation agenda? “Interfacing Innovation” will debate all of these questions and more, with a special focus on the European Institute of Innovation and Technology (EIT). Co-organised by the European Journalism Centre and the European Commission, the conference boasts the leading lights in technology and innovation. It features several ambassadors from the European Year of Creativity and Innovation, officials from CERN and researchers from Stanford University – all shaping an ongoing dialogue, across time and states.

    • Scoop #8, GIS, the True Story

      Todd Schuble introduces GIS to IT professionals at the University of Chicago. He explains what it is, how one can use it, and what its benefits could be for the university beyond just helping researchers spatialize their data. This was the eighth in a series of “Scoops”—short presentations about topics important to IT types at the university. I wasn’t at this presentation, but I edited in the graphics, tried to level out the sound, and trimmed things down a bit. Todd’s also a co-worker and instructor of mine.

        Final cut of the final video for Team ZACA in the MIT NextLab program. They are creating a new technology that allows farmers access to crop price information, giving them bargaining power with middlemen who have been underpaying them. The product is being launched in Zacatecas, Mexico, with plans to expand to other locales later on.

          • Are open source communities sexist?

            Open source has been accused of being anti-capitalist, the saviour of government, and a way of breaking vendor lock-in and saving money in a down economy. This panel discussion involving senior leaders from open source organizations will explore these themes and provide valuable insights. Open source is often touted as inclusive and meritocratic thus one might expect it to be more inclusive of women and minorities. In response to a great question from Greg Wilson in the audience about why ratios of men:women in open source are *worse* than in corporate projects, we had a great discussion of why that might be. We'll revisit this important issue in the future. Panelists included: * Ingres CEO - Roger Burkhardt * Mozilla Executive Director - Mark Surman * Eclipse Executive Director - Mike Milinkovich * IBM Software Developer - Lawrence Mandel * i365, A Seagate Company Software Developer - Austin Ziegler * Redhat, Solutions Architect - Andrew Jennings The panel was chaired by Andrew Ross

                    On Wednesday, 22 April 2009, Professor Ichiro Matsumura from Emory University presented a lunchtime talk about using Acinetobacter ADP1 as a Synthetic Biology chassis: Abstract: Synthetic biologists generally build upon the Escherichia coli chassis, which usually necessitates a life of cloning. Acinetobacter baylyi sp. ADP1 offers two significant advantages over E. coli: natural competence, and efficient homologous recombination. I will explain how these natural advantages obviate cloning and streamline the directed evolution of genes and genomes. I will also describe the engineering of a broad host range expression vector pBAV1K (Biobrick Accepting Vector) that replicates and produces proteins in a wide variety of gram negative and gram positive bacteria. These tools enable the facile laboratory evolution of genes and chromosomes, without restriction digests or ligation reactions.
