Accelerating Scientific Progress Through Public Availability of Research Data #aaasmtg · natnetnews · Storify
The above link connects to a Storify. Storify is described as a social media tool that “lets you curate social networks to build social stories, bringing together media scattered across the Web into a coherent narrative.” The creator describes the current Storify as “detail[ing] the online conversations around the ‘Accelerating Scientific Progress Through Public Availability of Research Data’ session at the 2012 AAAS meeting. The session was held at 8 - 9.30am on Sunday 19th February.” The Storify was generated by curating tweets made by meeting attendees and captures their view of the salient points made by each presenter. The presenters were Atul Butte (Translational Medical Discoveries Through Data Transparency and Reuse), Vernon L. Asper (Data Sharing and Access Challenges Associated with the Gulf Of Mexico Oil Spill Research), and Heather A. Piwowar (Costs and Benefits of Public Data Archiving).
