Saturday Links

1. Bioimage informatics conferences in Leuven and in Oporto

2. BBC Horizon 1977-1978 on the introduction of computers The only thing that is outdated about this documentary are the fashions. Mike Cooley, an union leader claims:

It may be necessary for individual nation-states to make clear decisions about what kind of development and society they want, and, if necessary, be prepared to protect themselves from the ruthless introduction of this kind of equipment [automation using computers] by the multinational corporations.

3. New face of biology? Outsource wetlab work, keep analysis in house? For many studies this makes way more sense than the often proposed opposite (do wetlab in house, outsource analysis to the cloud).
