Dear All,

Further to Jack's email, I have added Sophie, Megan and Sarah to the
Open Literature list. (Welcome!) It occurs to me that not everyone may
be up to date with the organising doodle, so here's the link:


(I suspect we may have to have several skype conferences in order to
fit everyone in...)

On a different note, there are several pending requests for an editor,
if you are interested, please email both myself and the writer, and
update the google document (accessible from the 'Team' section of

fancy writing word of the day articles?

Looking forward to hearing from you about the conference, the editing,
the introductions, and the blog,
