Hi All,

Eric Miller, John Wilbanks, Elizabeth Wu, myself, and approximately  
75 other experts in neuroinformatics and the neuroscience publishing  
community are at the Pub Med Plus meeting sponsored by the Society  
for Neuroscience, NIH Blueprint project, and the NeuroCommons/SC.

Floyd Bloom (venerable neuroscientist/neuroinformaticist and former  
managing editor of 'Science') just gave the plenary talk on the  
evolution of scientific publishing from the mid-17th century up to  
today, where he noted current worthy efforts in "new" forms of  
publishing and "promising starts".  Amongst those "new" efforts Dr.  
Bloom cited were the SWAN project, work by the Yale SenseLab group,  
the BIRNLex ontology, and the BMC Bioinformatics HCLS IG article Kei  
shepherded into publication last December. Dr. Bloom is a senior  
neuroscientist who's been intimately involved with the publication of  
scientific information throughout the last 30 years but has had no  
direct involvement either with the HCLS IG or any of the other cited  
groups, nor has he had any direct experience using Semantic Web  
technologies.  I believe this makes his recognition these efforts all  
the more compelling.

Kudos to all.
