#rfringe13 Repositories for scientific data with #animalgarden

We are going to the Repository Fringe this week and are going to present a PechaKucha. What’s that? It’s 20 slides of 20 seconds each that change automatically. So 400 seconds in all. And the first one has to introduce you and that last says thanks. You can see some past ones at http://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PL692EDA7EE606D73C.PMR has a slot called “Capturing and Publishing Scientific Data”. He’s asked us [#animalgarden] to create the slides


We’re #animalgarden – we make photocomics about openness. Here’s one we made about #openbibliography. /pmr/2012/09/14/animalgarden-at-digital-research-2012-openbiblio-and-bibsoup-and-okfest/. It won second prize. (We don’t do it for the prizes, we do it because we like making photocomics).

PMR doesn’t think Institutional repositories work for scientific data (or publications). He thinks we need domain repositories (e.g. proteins, galaxies, phylogenetic trees, molecules, crystal structures, materials, etc. So we’re going to present the issues as a photocomic.

We all take different roles

Here’s Chuff (the OKFN Okapi) advocating open data, clean penguin being a hacker, and OWL (geddit?) representing the Semantic Web. We’re thinking about props and roles (PMR hasn’t worked out the story yet).

Back to work … See you at #rfringe13
