    Catherine @genegeek that would be sooo cool! Katriona Guthrie-Honea, the teen-aged co-founder of the HiveBio community bio lab in Seattle, will be there August 7 (she RSVPed via one of the Meetups). See on that, HiveBio are opening soon and they should all meet! I also want to get a team together to hack on which is being built for open notebooks. We want to use it at the new and it would be cool to get feedback from anyone who has notebooked with WordPress.

      That is awesome! All 3 teens tried Open Science last year. I learned a few things ;) We’re trying again this year if you want some guinea pigs
