  8. 8. this talk is about the research concept acknowledging the use of another's data.<br />
  9. 9. but first…<br />
  10. 10. 1. find data.2. access data.3. understand data.4. be influenced by data.5. provide credit back for influence.<br />
  11. 11. so let’s be clear that citing data depends on a lot of other actions…<br />
  12. 12. and try to figure out if this is about credit, influence, the advancement of science, or something else.<br />
  13. 13. 1. we start from a position of agreement: data citation is needed.<br />
  14. 14. this run of slides was influenced by Todd Carpenter and Paul Groth.<br />

  32. 32. 3. we must avoid “this time is different” thinking.<br />
  33. 33. lesson:we usually get it wrong, or at best semi-right, the first time we do it.<br />
  34. 34.
  35. 35. lesson:when we try to solve all the problems at once, we overdo it.<br />
  36. 36.
  37. 37. “Taking the "forklift upgrade" approach to networking, it specified eliminating all existing protocols and replacing them with new ones at all layers of the stack. This made implementation difficult, and was resisted by many vendors and users with significant investments in other network technologies. In addition, the protocols included so many optional features that many vendor's implementations were not interoperable.”<br />http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Open_Systems_Interconnection<br />
  38. 38. lesson:let the critics fix the problems.<br />
  39. 39.

  49. 49.
  50. 50. why are we here?there is a path.<br />
  51. 51. because there is a path.<br />
