Web design meeting planning. We need to have a brainstorm of non-science things to do with OSM, mainly of web design and platforms for collaboration. Draft agenda in the link below, plus some possible times. Comment here or there. Lots of important things we need to talk about for reducing barriers to participation by bench scientists who hate passwords.

Happy New Year everyone! The team could use some help/advice with this difluoromethylation. Its proving a bit tricky but we really need to synthesise this intermediate and would greatly value the help of the synthetic community. Blog here: http://malaria.ourexperiment.org/uri/49b explains in more detail. Cheers everyone, all ideas welcome and also for trifluoromethylation.
