LIMS and Web 2.0, makes a great combo!
The Internet is a relatively new tool for science (relative to a tool like the microscope). The Internet was orginally created by scientists to enhance real time collaboration between scientists. Today, scientific information is prolific on the Internet and with the advent of new technologies and techniques such as Blogs, Wikis, RSS and other such technobable collectively known as Web 2.0, scientific collaboration and information consumption will explode. Science and all other knowledge professions can take advantage of Web 2.0 to advance both pure and applied research to limits not seen since the advent of electricity.
