In Case You Still Don't Know What They Do

Science Commons has put the talents of Jesse Dylan, Bob Dylan's oldest son and noted videographer, to use to create a marketing video for the organization. In an effort to get more people to understand "why the commons works for science," John Wilbanks hopes it will be the start of a longer collaboration. The video itself reiterates the organization's goals of making scientific information more accessible and integrating separate sources of information. Says Dylan: "They've changed the way we think about exploration and discovery; the important and innovative ideas need to be shared. I believe it's vital to revolutionizing science in the future."
