Hello,

As most of you know if you've looked at the OpenWetWare homepage or called in to recent steering committee meetings, we've had a search open for a second full-time member of OpenWetWare team. After launching a new search for an OpenWetWare managing director in the last few months, we've extended an offer to Lorrie LeJeune. And we are excited to say that she has accepted.

Lorrie will bring a diverse set of skills to OpenWetWare. Most notably, she's worked previously both as a laboratory research scientist at Collaborative Research, Inc. (now Oscient Pharmaceuticals, Inc.) and as an editor at O'Reilly Media, Inc. for all of O'Reilly's bioinformatics books. She even drew the artwork on some of the O'Reilly covers! Lorrie will officially begin work full-time at OpenWetWare on February 4, 2008.

Many of you had an opportunity to speak with Lorrie at a previous steering committee meeting. You'll all have a chance to speak again with Lorrie at the upcoming steering committee meeting on Thursday January 10, 2008.

Please join us in welcoming Lorrie to the OpenWetWare community!
