I think this weblog style communication has a lot of untapped potential. I am seriously considering the following:
– Opening a publicly accessible weblog on SAXS, where anyone can post anything he deems interesting for the rest of the readership to read/see/know. This would be significantly different from a forum in that it is not intended for too much discussion afterwards.
– Opening a private weblog in which I can discuss topics with my supervisors regarding my Ph.D. project. This way we can have communication outside of the standard fora, such as meetings and co.
