Attending Spring BioConference Live 2011

This week I “attended” the Spring BioConference Live 2011, a virtual conference devoted to the life sciences put on by the folks at Lab Roots. In the new online age, the concept of “attending” continues to be redefined. Promotion and registration proceed like with any conference. I first heard of the online conference back in 2009, and though my curiosity was pricked, I declined the free registration.
