Not that I want anyone to feel guilty, but I thought I’d keep a list of people who do not allow twittering (or blogging about their talk.) Admittedly, sometimes there are good reasons, so I’ll post those as well, if I’m aware of it.
This is simply so that I can keep track of which talks will not have notes. I expect this list to grow, unfortunately.
- Rick Wilson: Was presenting someone else’s talk, which included unpublished data.
- Richard Weinshilboum, Mayo Clinic: No reason given.
- Kerstin Lindblad-Toh, Broad Institute of MIT and Harvard: No reason given.
- Greg Barsh, Hudson/Alpha Institute: No reason given.
- Olivier Harismendy, UC San Diego: (See comment below)
- Michelle Sam, Ontario Institute of Cancer Research: No reason given.
- James Lupski, Baylor College of Medicine: Discussing confidential patient information. [May have included unpublished data.]
- Martin Hibberd, Genome Institute of Singapore: No reason given.
- Shanmuga Sozhamannan, Naval Medical Research Center: Presenting unpublished data.
- Peter White, The Research Institute at Nationwide Children’s Hospital: No reason given.
These are only the talks I’ve been to. If anyone wants to give me the names of other who are anti-blogging/anti-twitter from the other sessions, I can add those, but those are obviously not strictly holes in my notes, since I wouldn’t have been attending those talks.
