SpreadingScience is devoted to increasing the rate of diffusion of innovation throughout a community. We do this in part by championing the use of online tools to increase the flow of information derived from scientific investigation. We help people and organizations understand how human social networks rapidly disperse important and useful information, helping create new knowledge.
An emergent property of more rapid information flow is higher rates of innovation.
We foster this with a focused approach, providing more than simple coaching. We work at making information explicit what has formerly been only tacit. At the moment, we are directing our attentions towards biotechnology but expect to expand into other scientific areas of endeavor. We can interact with researchers representing information technology, bioinformatics, molecular biology, etc.
We serve as a bridge between the wetware of the lab and the software of the computer.
SpreadingScience was founded by Richard Gayle.
