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.

“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
