In memory of Jean-Claude Bradley Part II

Here is the talk I gave at the symposium in memory of Jean-Claude Bradley.

I start off with a description of an open notebook science experiment I did for JCB, a protein-ligand docking related to malaria. I was able to pull all the details from his wiki, the datasets, the method, the reasons for certain choices, the results and even the edit history.

Next I discuss his use of webservices to develop chemistry applications and show several examples from my past. Finally, I suggest that today JCB would use MineCraft instead of Second Life if he was looking for an immersive environment in which to build chemistry activities for students.
