Science 2.0 is the result of Web 2.0 tools and trends influencing the research area. In this paper, we focus on a scenario where a researcher is interested in the topic and speaker at a conference: finding more information about them is far from instantaneous. Thus, we identified a need to not only find speaker and paper information during the presentation, but also to subscribe to feeds that keep the attendee informed about ongoing work from the speaker. This work presents the development of a mobile application that groups all the relevant information of a speaker in a way that can be easily exposed and integrated in the normal workflow of the audience. The result is a frictionless blending of the face-to-face event that a conference or workshop presentation represents with the rich interaction and alerting services that a web2.0 environment provides.
