I didn't know where to post so hopefully someone out there is listening. I just watched these talks and had a great idea, but you guys would be the only people I know who could make this a reality. Imagine an internet where all the information of major pharmaceutical companies became open source, especially the chemistry of compounds that are being used to try and cure cancer. This would be kinda like a wikileaks of information for big pharma. Imagine the justice and the type of collaboration that could arise from making this information available to the public for review and research. Just dreaming though........ ahhhh maybe some day. I also think it would be ethical, although I dont want to get into why right now. Occupy!!!!
