ISMB 2008: it’s a wrap

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.

  1. I’ll be at Manchester airport for about an hour at 7:30 “this morning” :) Not sure about the way back down yet, will let you know.

  2. I’ve got to say this sounds like a positively lunatic travel schedule but have a good rest up in the north. Lovely weather up in Aberdeen last week and it looks like its going to hold.
