Reinventing Discovery with Open Science, Michael Nielsen’s TEDx Waterloo

The speaker in this video clip, Michael Nielsen, is publishing a book with Princeton University Press in November 2011. The book titled Reinventing Discovery: The New Era of Networked Science makes sense of the exciting ways scientists and people collaborate online to solve problems.

In this TEDx Waterloo talk, Nielsen describes the polymath project which is coincidentally the brainchild of another PUP author — Timothy Gowers.

Enjoy the video and I’ll post more info about Michael’s book when it is available.
