al the buzz at #BOSC2014 #ismb #bioinformatics

The 15th Annual Bioinformatics Open Source Conference (BOSC 2014) was held at the John B. Hynes Memorial Convention Center in Boston on July 11-12, right before ISMB 2014 as one of the official ISMB SIG satellite meetings. http://www.open-bio.org/wiki/BOSC_2014_Schedule

@BioMickWatson @NomiHarris Think #BOSC2014 had 5 female of 35 speakers (inc. keynotes+panel) so 14%, not sure off for attendees but also low

@chris_dag not a mead-up at the Mead Hall? ;) [We went there after the #BOSC2014 #CodeFest in Cambridge/Boston]

@vkf1000 @BioMickWatson @iddux @ISMBinfo @OBF_BOSC indeed - we had at least one (male) single parent at our #BOSC2014 BOF group on diversity

I look forward to the day when every #ISMB or #BOSC2014 talk doesn't need to motivate with a spiel about the importance of reproducibility.

@ctitusbrown Oh my :( I didn't experience this at all... How can we address this #bosc2014 @OBF_BOSC ?
Titus Brown @ctitusbrown
Came up at #BOSC2014 after Jonathan Rees (mumble.net/~jar/) talk -- does @github have data liberation policy/functionality? 1/3

@mah1002 @EuroSciPy Sure. I keynoted #BOSC2014 and found it warm and welcoming. Something tells me you are well known :)

Interestingly, I was told by non-regular attendees of #BOSC2014 _and_ SciPy 2013 that *both* were "cliquish". 1/2

@pjacock @iddux that's fine but it's worth pointing out that the Bio* is rapidly expanding, inc. biojs, biohaskell, biocaml. #BOSC2014 #ISMB

@IHStreet @aloraine205 #bosc2014 was great. Phil Bourne NIH talked @ reproducibility crisis, how bioinf'matics is more important than ever.
