myExperiment – 2.0 overload

myExperiment is for scientists “to share, re-use and repurpose experiments”. It makes me feel a little Web 2.0 queasy. An Open Source beta, built in Ruby on Rails, supporting Creative Commons licenses, complete with wiki, tags, openid, bookmarklets, and a restful API.

Oddly one of the FAQs is ‘why not use Facebook?’. Did someone seriously suggest that?
