Expanding the Academic Research Community: Building Bridges into Society with the Internet

Below the slides of the honors lecture I just gave at the University of Alabama in Huntsville. The slides can be downloaded here.

The talk is based on a book chapter with the same title that will be published by Monash University Publishing in the fall.  A preprint of this chapter can be downloaded here. Thanks to the students for all your great questions. If there’s any more, feel free to post them here as comments.

I loved your talks and I’m currently attempting to apply the things you mentioned to my current projects. I will be trying to tie in no less than 10 tools and sites for a crowdsourcing campaign.Thanks for inspiration and education. My project page is here http://bit.ly/1a7pjb8. Constructive criticism is welcome! Thanks!
