The ASMS Computer Applications Interest Group will hold

a lunchtime workshop on Wednesday, June 5 at the ASMS

annual meeting in Orlando, Florida.

This year’s topic is “Analytical Data Storage and Exchange

using XML”, and will feature a presentation by James Duckworth

of Thermo Galactic and discussion of efforts underway to

develop official standards for representing analytical,

chemical, and biological data using XML.

The interest group meeting format is informal; if you are

working with or considering using XML to solve data storage

or exchange problems in your environment, please come and

participate. We will have a transparency projector available.

There is room for one or two more SHORT presentations (no more than 10 minutes). Please contact me if you wish to present.

Bring a lunch. The meeting is scheduled for Wednesday,

12:15 – 1:30 pm, Grand VIII ballroom. Please refer to the

ASMS notice board for any last-minute changes. I look forward to seeing you there!

MS Webmasters, it is time to update your old Mass Spectrometry on the Internet links. Any pages with the old Emory links (http://userwww.service.emory.edu/~kmurray/mslist.html or the really old http://tswww.cc.emory.edu/~kmurray/mslist.html) should update their links to the SpectroscopyNow/Basepeak link: http://www.spectroscopynow.com/Spy/ms/. The MS on the Internet link is now officially dead.

To find out what pages are linked to the old site, see below:

Sites linking to the old MS on the Internet page

Welcome to my mass spectromery Web log or “blog” as they are called. Blogs are Web pages that consist of chronologically arranged lists similar to journal entries or news reports. The purpose of this blog is to record items of interest that I find on the Internet that I think will be of interest to the mass spectrometry community. I do this anyway as editor of Basepeak and the Mass Spectrometry Internet Resources FAQ; I’m hoping that blogging will make this easier. My philosophy from the early days of “Mass Spectrometry on the Internet” has been to try any Internet format and see how it plays with the MS crowd. Some things have worked and some haven’t. We’ll give this a go.
