If you happen to be a BioMoby developer, a bioinformatician, or just interested in helping us out and possibly making $20 of gift certificate remuneration, come have a go at annotating some BioMoby web services with a specialized version of the Entity Describer. You will need to use Firefox, Safari, or Opera - no Explorer support so far.. and jam on over to the jamboree website.

Warning, it is seriously difficult..
We've been working hard to produce a system that makes this task (a) possible and (b) as intuitive as possible. However, even when you know what you are doing and have figured out how to use the interface, the task of describing things you don't necessarily know intimately with a vocabulary you are also unfamiliar with is a real challenge. I'm very curious to see what people end up doing and to assess how well we can pull their collective efforts together.
