Nature Network Boston: an online social space for scientists

On Nascent Timo Hannay spoke about Web 2.0 in science. He also announced:

Nature Network Boston, an online social space for scientists will be launching in May

We might expect a new social network such as LinkedIn, OpenBC,etc... for scientists :-) ! This is not a new idea as SIPHS already tried to build such a network. And is it a good idea to create another network only for scientists ? But there might have good idea such as linking it to Nature's connotea. Nature might also have enough influence to link authors in pubmed to its site...

wait and see.
