let’s talk about the web kaitlin thaney @kaythaney ; @mozillascience citizen cyberscience summit / 20 feb 2014


we need to talk about the web

as a platform communication dissemination access, reuse, scale

early forms of knowledge sharing

emergence of new communities, practice

broader access, engagement, scale


there’s still friction in the system. despite original intentions.

“ traditions last not because they are excellent, but because influential people are averse to change and because of the sheer burdens of transition to a better state ... “ Cass Sunstein


doing good is part of our code

help researchers use the power of the open web to change science’s future.

our systems need to talk to one another. both human and machine.

code as a research object what’s needed to reuse ?

we need to build capacity, not just more nodes.

digital literacy

“Reliance on ad-hoc, selfeducation about what’s possible doesn’t scale.” - Selena Decklemann

education as a means of building community ... globally, as well as across disciplines.

learn from open source (culture as well as technology)

current activity: 129 instructors (60+, training) 109 bootcamps 3700+ learners

in an increasingly digital, datadriven world, what core skills, tools do the next-generation need?


shifting practice (and getting it to stick) is challenging. ... but not impossible.

disciplines as cultures

can we do the same for research on the web? 63 nations 10,000 scientists 50,000 participants

how can we bridge citizen / open / web-enabled? 63 nations 10,000 scientists 50,000 participants

what are the necessary components? tools and technology cultural awareness, best practice connections, open dialogue skills training


operating in isolation doesn’t scale.

coordination and collaboration are key. design for interoperability. remember the non-technical challenges.

join us (and the conversation.) teach, contribute, learn. http://software-carpentry.org http://mozillascience.org

questions? kaitlin@mozillafoundation.org @kaythaney ; @mozillascience
