  • Ok, so the first action item is to find a different term for 'use cases'. Do you want to do a requirements gathering for that or shall we be more agile?

    But seriously, would you be interested in working from an outline with different contributors working towards an edited volume?

  • @rvosa I guess all of the above. Phylogeny would be a useful central hub, around which could be linked all the layers of annotation that we'd like, which lead us to cybertaxonomy, specimen databases, literature data mining, etc. 'Use cases' is a phrase that makes my blood curdle, I tend to think more in terms of 'wouldn't it be cool to be able to do this' or 'I want to do this' I guess this is the same thing as a use case, but without the 'lets have some meetings and endless discuss stuff without actually doing it' bit ;)

  • When you say broader than phylogenies, what do you? Biodiversity informatics? Cybertaxonomy? Phylogenomics? All of the above? Sounds fun. For sure it would have to be an e-book, I agree. I suppose a robust, usable interface to a phylogenetic database could be one of the use cases in the book, perhaps as a way to discuss different back end solutions ('Big Data', NoSQL, etc.), though I'd love to see more use cases.

  • @rvosa I think a book would make sense, provided it is also online, and broader than just phylogenies. I also think it would be fun to have a book that is built round actually making something. Like, dare I say it, a usable interface to TreeBASE ;)

  • I don't know if a book is such crazy talk: Bill and I have also been talking for a while now about a practical phyloinformatics book (with comphy materials). Maybe the time has come for such a thing.
