Abstract: Jean-Claude Bradley blazed a trail that many of us have followed. A true visionary, a dreamer of dreams, but what was his motivation? What was the goal he was striving towards? What was his vision of the future and why was Open Notebook Science a part of that vision? I will present Jean-Claude's work, from coining the phrase 'Open Notebook Science' to his latest project 'Chemical Rediscovery,' through the lens of defining the future for Open Notebook Science.
