Leveraging the power of the web - Rocky Mountain Advanced Computing Conference

  1. 1. kaitlin thaney @kaythaney ; @mozillascience RMACC / 12 aug 2015 leveraging the power of the web for science
  2. 2. doing good is part of our code
  3. 3. help researchers leverage the power of the open web.
  4. 4. learning around open source, data sharing needed to further open practice; empowering others to lead in their communities.
  5. 5. code (interop) community (people) code/data literacy (means to learn/engage)
  6. 6. (0)
  7. 7. http://bit.ly/1eZZC0f
  8. 8. our current systems are creating friction. despite original intentions.
  9. 9. current state of science articles data patents
  10. 10. some have a firehose articles data patents
  11. 11. quality versus quantity measured systems

  13. 13. (1)
  14. 14. what does “web literacy” mean for research?
  15. 15. communication access, reuse, scale distributed environment the web as a platform
  16. 16. power, performance, scale
  17. 17. - access to content, data, code, materials. - emergence of “web-native” tools. - rewards for openness, interoperability, collaboration, sharing. - push for ROI, reuse, recomputability, transparency. “web-enabled research”
  18. 18. research social capital capacity infrastructure layers for open research open tools standards best practices research objects scientific software repositories incentives recognition / P&T interdisciplinarity collaboration community dialogue training mentorship professional dev new policies recognition stakeholders: universities, researchers, tool dev, funders, publishers, libraries...
  19. 19. putting open ideals into practice (+ paying it forward) https://commonspace.wordpress.com/2015/07/15/web-literacy-and-leadership/
  20. 20. service learning: n. hands- on, experiential learning where people develop skills by working on a project in service of a bigger goal. http://bit.ly/1JTMBSb
  21. 21. (2)
  22. 22. learning from (+ through) open source development examples of “science like the web” in practice
  23. 23. code as a research object what’s needed to reuse ? http://bit.ly/mozfiggit
  24. 24. <institutional archives> <national archives> <code repos> syndication and storage (via APIs)
  25. 25. http://softwarediscoveryindex.org/report/
  26. 26. from campaigning to discovery
  27. 27. open, iterative development the “work in progress” effect

  30. 30. (3)
  31. 31. fostering a (sustainable) community of practitioners
  32. 32. how do we amplify within research? (... and beyond software development?)
  33. 33. community-driven contributorship http://mozillascience.github.io/leadership-training/

  46. 46. lowering barriers to entry (+ leveling the playing field)
  47. 47. (5)
  48. 48. we have a history of working collaboratively. (but there’s room for improvement.)
  49. 49. 63 nations 10,000 scientists 50,000 participants can we do the same / better for research on the web?
  50. 50. think beyond access, to usability. design for interoperability. remember the non-technical challenges.
  51. 51. we’re here to help. http://mozillascience.org sciencelab@mozillafoundation.org
