ISMB 2008 wrapped up yesterday. I enjoyed it immensely and will have much more to say in the coming weeks. Right now I just wanted to say:
- It was great to meet so many of my online friends for the first time. I’ve “known” some of you for years, others for a few months and really enjoyed catching up with you all in person.
- Thanks to all who contributed to the coverage in the ISMB 2008 FriendFeed room. It was quite an experiment and I think we were all pleasantly surprised by how well it worked out. Looks like this could lead to some form of semi-official live blogging next year too, which would be excellent.
Tomorrow takes me through Chicago to Manchester, UK, then north to a little place called Carlisle – which happens to be where I was born. It’s not the most wired town in the world, so networking could be sporadic until I get back to Brissie on August 5th.
