That’s who is credited with creating Boston-NeuroTalks (look at the bottom of their page). It turns out that Boston’s a bit of a college town, and thus it’s difficult to keep up with all of the neuroscience talks at the various institutions. Boston-NeuroTalks started out as a mailing list, then evolved into a calendar service, and now is a wiki. It’s not a bad model and seems to work pretty well in practice.
Perhaps other places (e.g., New York, Bay Area, London, San Diego, Research Triangle) would also benefit from this kind of system.
