As an outcome from our BESSIG panel discussion the other day, I'm 
interested in the idea of a Data Decadal Survey, similar in nature to 
the recently released NRC Heliophysics Decadal Report 
The general idea is to document the current state of affairs and a 10 
year vision and strategy for data.

I would be very interested in working on the session.  I would consider 
leading the session if there is good support.
