"Am looking for systems for my lab to make electronic lab notebooks - suggestions? wiki? OWW? software?"
And have gotten some great responses so far from my various social networking circles and I thought I would centralize them here. At the bottom I will post some of the raw responses. Here is a current summary
Suggested things to look at so far
- Word documents in notebook layout
- Circus ponies notebook
- Google docs and Dropbox
- WordPress blogs, versioned, subscribe to RSS feeds of your student's work, HUGE GPL community.
- Open Wet Ware
- SmartPens such as ones from LiveScribe
- Google wave
- srhymes @phylogenomics have you tried Evernote? I use that for a lab notebook and love it! And it syncs across home, work, iphone, iPad...
- MeadGal @phylogenomics I like a word document in notebook layout. I tried labassistant from mekentosj and i see it working for some, just not me.
Also got some useful feedback from Eric Alm on Facebook who said they use Smart pens from LiveScribe.com
