For anyone who wasn’t aware: unfortunately this week’s Second Nature event, “The Importance of Patents to Scientists” was cancelled at the last minute when Second Life underwent a slight meltdown and none of us, including the speaker, Sue Scott, were able to reliably connect to Second Life. I would like to apologise to everyone who came and waited with us so patiently, and most of all Sue herself.
On a more pleasing note, Sue has kindly agreed to reschedule and a new date has been set.
The event will now be held on Monday 5th November at 11am SLT/PDT, 2pm EST, 7pm GMT. A formal reminder to be sent out nearer the time: for more information and the gory details of last week’s technical nightmares see the report on Nature Network.
