My talk from Pittcon 2015
The Royal Society of Chemistry provides open access to data associated with tens of millions of chemical compounds. The richness and complexity of the data has continued to expand dramatically and the original vision for providing an integrated hub for structure-centric data has been delivered across the world to hundreds of thousands of users. With an intention of expanding the reach to cover more diverse aspects of chemistry-related data includ...

I write book chapters regularly, and books occasionally, and am impressed at Amazon's holdings of cheap versions of used books and saddened by how fast my contributions devalue
I doubt, I hope I am not to blame. At least I hope not... The reality is that most books plummet in prices very quickly now after release. Actually, so do CDs ...when I buy a CD as a pre-order on A...

Poster well received at Pittcon today
ChemSpider is an online database of over 30 million chemical compounds sourced from over 500 different sources including government laboratories, chemical vendors, public resources and publications. Developed with the intention of building community for chemists ChemSpider allows its users to deposit data including structures, properties, links to external resources and various forms of spectral data. Over the past few years ChemSpider has aggreg...

How can the simple copy-paste for a list of author names result in so many changes....and the related issues of me being a common Williams
Yes, I am a Williams. And THAT is an incredibly common surname. But I am an Antony Williams, notice no H in the name, i.e. NOT Anthony. In the field of chemistry there are not many of us around...a...

I had the pleasure to sit on a panel at the Alzheimers Disease Research Summit in Session VI: Enabling Partnerships for Open Innovation: http://www.nia.nih.gov/about/events/2014/alzheimers-disease-research-summit-2015 . I had the opportunity to highlight some of the work RSC has done in terms of supporting (Open) Drug Discovery and working with Open PHACTS, PharmaSea and Open Source Drug Discovery.

This is my presentation from yesterday at the Opportunities in Materials Informatics meeting in Madison, Wisconsin. And as asked by Egon WIllighagen on Twitter yes, I had fun putting it together..there are a few chemistry jokes in there.
The Royal Society of Chemistry hosts one of the worlds’ richest collections of online chemistry data that is free-to-access for the community. ChemSpider presently hosts over 30 million unique chemical compounds together with associated data and accessible via a number of search techniques. With almost 50,000 unique users per day from around the world the site offers scientists the ability to investigate the world of small molecules via property ...

Story
Tagline
I am the ChemConnector - connecting chemists to chemistry on the internet
Introduction
With the ChemSpider team at the Royal Society of Chemistry I am leading the charge to show how experience, knowledge and insight can build a platform to facilitate "Building a Structure Centric Community for Chemists." Through ChemSpider (www.chemspider.com) we are providing the means by which a Semantic Web for chemistry can be realized now.

Over the past decade I held many responsibilities including the direction of the development of scientific software applications for spectroscopy and general chemistry, directing marketing efforts, sales and business development collaborations for the company. Eight years experience of analytical laboratory leadership and management. Experienced in experimental techniques, implementation of new NMR technologies, walk-up facility management, research and development, manufacturing support and teaching. Ability to provide situation analysis, creative solutions and establish good working relationships. Prolific author with over a hundred peer-reviewed scientific publications, 3 patents and many public presentations.

Founder of ChemZoo Inc., the host of ChemSpider (www.chemspider.com). ChemSpider is an open access online database of chemical structures and property transaction based services to enable chemists around the world to data mine chemistry databases. This is presently the focus of some of my time during my chosen sabbatical.

I engaged Carolina Hot Tub Repair to do work for me. They visited my home and gave me an estimate for work to be done of over $600. I was told it would require replacing the pump. They ordered the pump and then informed me the wrong pump was delivered and had ordered a new one. Since that time they have scheduled to install the pump and then not shown up. At this stage they are not answering any of my multiple text messages or phone calls....that I leave daily. I am out of pocket >$600 and tried to complain to the Better Business Bureau yet there is no physical address and the BBB have said they cannot do anything to help without a physical address. I am very disappointed.
