Freedom Tour: Day Five – October 10th, 2007

OpenWetWare!

OpenWetWare is an effort to promote the sharing of information, know-how, and wisdom among researchers and groups who are working in biology & biological engineering.

So now you know.
Met up with Jason and the guys from OpenWetWare at the Stata Center at MIT. This building is best described as odd.

While I was at MIT, I bumped into the people at Science Commons and even stumbled past Richard Stallman’s office, which has ‘Defender of Justice (and hot ladies)’ on his door sign, before heading downtown to the Free Software Foundation

The office is way cooler than I suspected (some photos by Bernardo) with a fair bit of space and new furniture. I had quite a long chat with Peter about some of the work the FSF is doing soon and the Google Summit, and then headed off for lunch with Deb and Brett. We had some really great burritos.
After work, and trying to contact Science Commons to schedule a meeting, we headed to Spike’s in Davis Square and then over to Joe Sent Me for Trivia.
Trivia is basically a pub quiz.
Running tally of Mountain Dew consumed: 6300ml.
