Two great Mashups: Nature Networks and NanoHUB

Two excellent examples of “mashups” – a website which permits Web 2.0 technologies to mingle video, sound, interactive and visual elements together seamlessly while allowing visitors from all over the world to communicate and interact (well…. that is, if you speak and read in English language).

Nature Network… Forums, blogs, news, commentary, technology sharing – and a choice between looking at Nature Boston or their Nature London site. Here is an interesting post about migrating Journal Clubs to Web 2.0: http://network.nature.com/blogs/user/UC5066B60/2007/08/22/the-role-of-journal-club-in-lab-life-and-how-to-move-it-to-the-web

nanoHUB describes itself as “a rich, web-based resource for research, education and collaboration in nanotechnology. nanoHUB hosts hundreds of resources which will help you learn about nanotechnology, including Online Presentations, Courses, Learning Modules, Podcasts, Animations, Teaching Materials, and more. Most importantly, the nanoHUB offers simulation tools which you can access from your web browser, so you can not only learn about but also simulate nanotechnology devices.”

I found nanoHUB Educational Materials and Tool Index pages to be pretty interesting. Their sitemeter states that there were 2.7 million hits on the page in the last month (wow!)
