As this year's convention draws to a close, we'd like to stop and take a moment and thank all the people that made our foray into social media a success. Thanks to all the bloggers on BIO on the road, who reported their experiences as they happened. Thanks to the members of the BIO 2008 Twitter group, who really gave us a feel for the convention, blow-by-blow. Finally, thanks to those of you who joined and participated in our group on facebook. The really great thing about social media is that helps us to stay connected in the absence of face-to-face interactions, like we've had at the convention. And while there is nothing that can replace those meetings, the online world gives us the opportunity to continue our conversations 365 days a year, and on a global scale. Having said that, we hope that you will connect with us year-round by visiting us on BIO.org or any of our sister sites and blogs. We hope to see you soon online. And to everyone, thanks again.
