Science 2.0 Science 2.0 is a somewhat controversial umbrella term, not precisely defined,[1] which describes a range of activities,[2] described by proponents of the term as coalescing[3] into an emerging open science movement.[3][4] The term suggests the benefit of increased collaboration between scientists,[2][3][5] often digitally based, using computer networking and the Internet.[6] Science 2.0 encompasses scientists using collaborative technology like wikis,[4] blogs,[4][5] and video journals,[2] to share findings,[4] which may include raw data and "nascent theories" online.[7] The sense of the term suggests the benefits of openness and sharing, regarding papers and research ideas and partial solutions.[3] A general view is that Science 2.0 is gaining traction[3] with websites beginning to proliferate,[7] yet at the same time there is considerable resistance within the scientific community about aspects of the transition as well as discussion about what, exactly, the term means.

The Pace of Productivity and How to Master Your Creative Routine by Maria Popova “When you work regularly, inspiration strikes regularly.” We seem to have a strange but all too human cultural fixation on the daily routines and daily rituals of famous creators, from Vonnegut to Burroughs to Darwin — as if a glimpse of their day-to-day would somehow magically infuse ours with equal potency, or replicating it would allow us to replicate their genius in turn.

Manage Your Day-to-Day: Build Your Routine, Find Your Focus, and Sharpen Your Creative Mind (public library), edited by Behance’s 99U editor-in-chief Jocelyn Glei and featuring contributions from a twenty of today’s most celebrated thinkers and doers, delves into the secrets of this holy grail of creativity.
