The CINF Division of ACS has explored recording of conference symposia via iPod technology [see Martinsen, D. P., ACS Chem. Biol. 1 [4], 195-197 [2006]]. Posting of sessions to the Internet reaches out to a much larger number of chemists than those able to attend in person. Brian Lynch and Lai Im Lancaster, St Francis Xavier University
