Scifoo: Pictures and Comments

I’ve already written several posts about Scifoo but it’s time to sum things up. What is Scifoo?

Sci Foo is an annual, interdisciplinary, invitation-only scientific ‘unconference’ organized by Nature Publishing Group, Google and O’Reilly Media.

Sci Foo ‘09 will be held on July 10th-12th, 2009 at the Googleplex in Mountain View, California.


Please take a look at the posts I’ve published about the sessions I attended and the things I saw:

Here are a few pictures as well:

I'm sorry for the last image, but I had to include it. New things to read every day in the toilet.

So it was a one-in-a-lifetime experience and I met incredible people. I hope I will keep in touch with many of them online.
