SciFoo, eGY, and Splitting

  1. OpenWetware has posted notes from SciFoo. I'm sorry I missed it; looking forward to "Science in the 21st Century" even more than before.
  2. Those notes pointed me at the Electronic Geophysical Year declaration. I agree in principle, but think that something like the Open Source Initiative's "certified open" badge would be more useful than UN-ish statements like, "Effort should be made to identify and rescue critical Earth system data and ensure persistent access to them."
  3. We're very close to re-launching the Software Carpentry site as a wiki, and I'm wondering if I should move the science-and-computing thread out of this blog into a separate one at that site. Thoughts?
