Digging for data with Chemlist and ChemSpider

(eurekalert.org): Just like the rest of us, scientists today are swamped with information. As more chemical resources become freely available, text mining applications - previously focused on correctly identifying gene and protein names - are now shifting towards also correctly identifying chemical names.

Ebook market exploding, says new iDPF survey

(teleread.org): The ebook market is growing faster as it grows larger. The International Digital Publishing Forum (IDPF) on Friday reported U.S. wholesale ebook sales for January, 2010 were $31.9 million, up 261 percent from the same month a year earlier. The data is collected from only 12-15 U.S. trade publishers.

The data also doesn't capture ebooks sold outside traditional retail channels.
