Nielsen, author of Reinventing Discovery, examines this unprecedented era of networked science, and how scientists are using the Internet to expand our problem-solving ability and increase our combined brainpower. Presented as part of Seattle Science Lectures, with Pacific Science Center and University Book Store. Series sponsored by Microsoft. Series media sponsorship provided by KPLU.
