  12. Please suspend disbelief... - security - IP - regulatory issues ...I will come back to them http://www.flickr.com/photos/nihilenz/2545518545
  13. In the last five years...? http://flickr.com/photos/stewart/461099066/

  19. The Lab that was Born on the Web Cameron Neylon
  20. The premise.... Most of what is needed to build a fully integrated laboratory recording system can be found, for free, in existing web services... (it does lack a little polish admittedly) It just needs to be wired up (that’s a big “just”)
  21. Lab book as a journal... http://www.flickr.com/photos/nbachiyski/2186228572/
  22. Blog as journal...
  23. Description, date categorisation, objects, identity, accessibility... ...not of much interest to most people

  30. Schema? Stuff gets combined with other stuff and stuff is done to it to make more stuff. (Meaning can be layered on later according to specific needs)

  33. Data services ...get someone else to do the heavy lifting...
  34. Good data services will... Provide a URL endpoint for any item  Will understand your data type enough...  ...to provide simple embed codes and more sophisticated re-packaging where required Handle versioning, identity, date stamps,  provenance, security, etc...

  44. If we push it all out to other services...
  45. ...what are we left with?
  46. Time
  47. The feed of links between resources Time
  48. How do you capture this?

  52. A framework. Not a system.
  53. Standardize the connections
  54. Not the end points
  55. The architecture is already in place The standards already exist There is a massive infrastructure in place Use whatever tools you(r users) want... ....just provide an accessible endpoint
  56. “If my business model was based on control I’d be getting real worried right about now” John Wilbanks,Vice President, Science Commons
  57. ...delivery of information to the right place, at the right time...
  58. The future will be about leveraging other people’s data
  59. Less “integration”. More “linking”.
