[Esip-dds] Fwd: executable data objects, nanopublications, the explitome

Hi DDSers,

This is a great visionary article!  It practically makes the case for us 
right up front.

(This was my own email that I sent back in Feb and then completely 
forgot about!)

I think we could hinge a lot of our argument on this vision.  Any thoughts?

Hi all,

FYI, this is an interesting article (though I find the title misleading):


(Be sure to check out Archimedes, search on "Aha!")

These ideas are interesting and seem relevant to the creation of a 10
year vision.  Apparently these are all partially implemented, so are
more than just a vision:

- an executable data object available to all
- fast user evaluation and feedback (via Twitter!)
- nanopublications, e.g., data sets
- providers of services dedicated to "finding associations too difficult
for any one human brain to analyze alone"
     - searching the "explitome" - all findable, explicit assertions
- some examples of scientific results made possible by linking
completely different research areas
- SciencePad, http://sciencepad.web.cern.ch/about, for managing software
     - IMO the DDS survey should at least include the software that made
the data
