  • Talk about citation data, difficult to get 2 weeks to gather a couple of hundred citation scores
  • Open data to the rescue…. (
  • My own community
  • Faster Easier to experiment Access to more data
  • Effective at the institutional level: Examples: Uniprot, chembl, astromicial data service, us government weather data
  • Not as much experience at the personal level But good examples from (open source software)
  • Built software during my phd released it as open source…..
  • A fairly highly sighted paper in the UK e-Science All Hands Meeting (not the biggest outlet in the world)
  • Led to new collaborators
  • Exposing your dirty laundry is scary
  • Lots of questions about the software People want support This is a distraction and can take time away from “science”
  • Name-check e-science center for 3
  • Open Data: Ready Set Go
